When my kids were growing up I made sure that they sleep at 8:00 p.m. so that I could wake them up for Noche Buena. It was futile at first for the first three daughters. They were ages, 5,4, and 2.5 and just could not wake on Christmas eve to humor me. Nevertheless I persevered for years, until finally no one wants to sleep anymore and would rather wait for midnight to strike so they could open their gifts. By this time my kids were ages 12, 11, 9, 5 and 2. I usually have my close friend Eva and her family with us on Christmas Eve. Below are some pictures taken on Christmas eve 1992.

My son, aged two, eyes closed, while I try to "wake"
him up by shoving gifts in his hands.
