by jalapenoman | created - 20 Dec 2014 | updated - 20 Dec 2014 | Public

Some people have excited and anxious children that get them up very early on Christmas morning. Other empty nesters or folks that live alone get to stay in bed a little longer. For those that celebrate/observe the holiday: What time were you awakened on Christmas morning?

Please select the time closest to the moment that you got to "rise and shine," not for the movie that is your favorite.
