One thing we do is we pass out a present, the person opens it, everyone oohs and aahs, then the next present is passed out, opened, oohed and aahed over, then the next present..... Makes present opening last a lot longer than passing them out, and then everyone rips into them.
As far as when we do presents, it depends of if my husband has to work that morning or not. We've done presents as early as 9:00 in the morning and as late as 3:00 in the afternoon.
I don't fix a fancy meal. The big thing at our house (a family tradition since 1946) is ham sandwiches. Christmas Eve, we decorate a ham with pineapple rings and hard candy, bake it to melt the candy, put it in the fridge, and have sandwiches for lunch/dinner.
