Now, we all know that it’s only a matter of days before we’ll have a lot of excited kiddos on our hands...

Waking up extremely early on Christmas day to see what Santa has brought.

For many, Christmas is one of the most exciting holidays of the year.

There's nothing like spreading some Christmas magic across your home.

The tree isn't the only main event though.

"Cause some families can't afford that," social worker Megan Dunn explained.

"Little kids wonder why they got socks or a coat or hand me down toys from Santa and other kids got an iPad."

"Breaks my heart for the parents and the kids."

"Take credit for the gift."

"Santa didn't buy that iPad; Momma or Daddy did. Leave the less expensive gifts from Santa."

"Be blessed you can afford what others cannot. Merry Christmas."
