4.  Do you send thank you notes?

2007 answer: Yes, a very good habit my mother instilled in me when I was younger. I remember “forgetting” to send thank you notes one holiday, and my mom found out and made me write thank you notes for Christmas presents I received from aunts, uncles, etc. in February. That was the last time I “forgot” to write thank you notes.

2016 answer: Yes, I still send thank you notes. And I love my sisters make their kids write thank you notes.

5.  Did you wake your parents up early to open presents?

2007 answer: Of course … what kid didn’t?

2016 answer: No, since I don’t live with them anymore. I don’t envy my sisters on Christmas day when their little rugrats push them out of bed at an early hour.
