    I grew up in Brooklyn which is a country (the major one) on the same continent as the US and Canada. We always gave out the gifts about 10 or 11PM on Christmas Eve and then on Christmas Day we had our family dinner.

    France and germany add up to almost 33% of EU's population.. Argentina & Brazil is a major part of South America. Christmas isn't a thing in Africa/asia. So that's basically the global rule.

    It seems like there are some more countries according to wikipedia.
    Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Denmark, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Quebec, Romania, Uruguay, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and the Czech Republic, Christmas presents are opened mostly on the evening of the 24th-
    But for me Christmas is more about the big feast with all the food, a Christmas dinner has a crazy lot of food enough for many weeks to come.

    Sometimes vBulletin just gets confused with post counts.... There are no posts in the mod queue or the like.

    One of the comments was probably caught up in the moderation queue.

    I guess it is because Santa loves us more so he comes a day early with all the good stuff.
