I think this is such a "culture of where you live/the group you hang with". Here NO ONE, opens presents at kids parties. Between my three dd's we have probably been to more than 400 birthday parties in the last ten years and not one involved present opening. Written thank yous were sent in almost all cases.

Good manners without swimsuits! Robert OM Gosh! No it is NOT a matter of "making body parts invisible". It is matter of a culture where private parts are just that "PRIVATE." We don't walk around...
