Random Christmas Memory #2

Growing up, my family (aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents) all lived within 30 minutes of each other. Now, I realize how amazing that was. Then, it's just the way it was.

Because of that close proximity, my Dad's parents would call each of their 3 children to make sure that everyone was awake and that the presents had been opened, then they made the rounds to each house. They spent only about 20 minutes at each house, but they made sure to "ooooh" and "aaaahhhh" over each and every little thing that Santa had left for the grandkids. They did this even though we would all be at their house in a matter of hours to see what Santa had left over there. Then Grandma and Grandpa would "oooh" and "aaaahhhh" over all of those gifts.
