Christmas is the most awaited festivity of the year. It is a time for families to gather and exchange gifts with each other.

Usually, weeks ahead of the holiday celebration, family members buy their gifts, wrap them and place them under their beautifully lighted Christmas tree. Ideally, those boxes are intended to be opened right after the exchange gift is done.

However, a toddler, aged 3, just can’t hold on to her excitement anymore when at three in the morning, she woke up and opened all the gifts displayed below their Christmas tree. Tons of toys and torn wrappers were scattered everywhere.  Her aunt, Jamiesha Cooper, saw the lovely mess, took a snapshot of it and shared it on social media.

In 24 hours, the post earned 8k likes, 5k comments and 23k shares. The photo received mixed reactions from netizens. Others think it’s hilarious while some gave suggestions on how to avoid incidents like this.

“This is going to be a story passed down for a LONG time!! She’ll be sitting there with HER grandbabies and someone will say ‘Hey remember that time you opened everything a month before Christmas?’ Some things you just have to laugh at.”

“Also, you could always look at this way. That baby just knew how much mommy loves her and blessed her with all the good things she wanted so she just couldn’t wait to enjoy it and say thank you!!”

“That’s why I wrap empty boxes and put them under the tree and bring out the gifts on Christmas Eve. Open if they want to and get a nice surprise.”

“We bought Christmas early for our kids and they are currently hiding under our bed until we get them wrapped. We always put them out on Christmas Eve night so they can open them on Christmas day.”

Maybe the next thing to find out is if her mom will be wrapping those presents again.

Has this happened to you before? How do you keep those gifts safe from your kids?
