Depends how early it arrives. I shop when I need to, but other than that, I don't start "doing" Christmas until about mid-December. And that's what I aim for, when I send my parcels, so that it's "within the season" without taking a chance on it being late. So, I'd probably wait until I knew the parcels I sent had arrived.

On the matter of perishables, though, if I know there are perishables, their well-being will trump the integrity of the package.

Most likely I would open mine as well. Doesn't look like there will have to be too much persuading to join the Dark Side this year!

And to whomever gets the package I send out...you must be on the Dark Side. If you're not, you will get a message that you must turn to the Dark Side. I will be sending home-made cookies, and Kass and Karen can attest that they are yummy!

I haven't turned to the dark side yet. If cookies or something perishable gets sent to me, it's going to have to be specially marked for immediate opening! Other than that, I open my gifts on Christmas morning.
