The holidays have arrived! While it is the season for celebrating, caroling, overeating and lots of shopping, it is also one of the few times folks can exhibit pure, unadulterated emotion.
Don’t believe us? Just watch these kids unleash their gut reactions the moment they unwrap their Christmas bounty. There are tears. There are screams. There are weird body movements that can only be described as gleeful interpretive dancing.
As an adult, it’s a hilarious and somehow enviable spectacle. Watch the gift-inspired freak-outs below, and try to remember how emotional you get over that super pack of socks your mom buys you each year.

Someone conjure up a DVD player, we’re sensing a movie marathon in the future.

Sometimes the road to the happiest place on Earth is full of detours – and boxes.

11. The Naughty List
Leave it to Jimmy Kimmel to add some tricks to the Christmas season. Much like his annual Halloween gag, where parents pretend to eat all the candy, Kimmel challenges parents to give their kids horrible Xmas gifts each year and film their reactions.
