I peeked once when I was about 12-years-old because I was sure, sure, sure that what was in the box was what I'd asked for. This was based on the size and shakability of the package. Needless to say, it wasn't and what was in it I didn't like at all. I wrapped it up carefully so no one would be the wiser and put it back where it had been under the tree. I had to act surprised AND pleased when I actually opened it. That cured me.
I'm a very curious person, but I have to wait. The anticipation is excruciating but fun.
