Boxing Day for me. Parents are visiting for a week (they live 400 miles away and want to come and see their granddaughter). Bought my dad some wheel woolies and OCD wax so we will be out on Boxing Day doing at least one car together whilst my wife and mother spoil my little girl.

I'll do it on Christmas Eve. Christmas day will be spent playing with my son, cooking with my gorgeous wife, and eating with our family.

Bit harsh given we didn't know personal circumstances what if the OP had no family??

Each to their own I say. As another poster said as a kid we used to play with our toys on Xmas day so why not as an adult??

I won't be as I'll have too much else to do however I find cleaning my car therapeutic and calming so a couple of hours rest from the chaos would be nice so as I say each to their own if you can get away with it

I fully intend to do ours on Christmas day depending on the weather. My wife didn't want to go to my parents house for the annual Christmas war and is going to her parents with my son on boxing day night for three days.

Presents opened first thing followed by a cooked breakfast. I'll then put our evening meal on to cook whilst I get on with the car. Wife and son will no doubt be watching crap on the tv anyway so I'm sure they wont miss me for an hour or so.
