A gift theory! Please vote!!

Ok so birthday parties. 

Aparently there is a population of people who do NOT Open gifts at the birthday party. 

And the other half of the population, are confused by this lol. 

So I was thinking, is it a regional thing? 

So, Look at the map. 

And go by which state you grew up in and/or spend the MOST OF YOUR LIFE in. Where do your values lie. ETC. 

Do you? And where do you live?

    I think it might be an age of kid thing and how many kids are invited to the party, too.  When kids turn about 5 or 6, parents aren't staying at parties and the kids want to play. They often have their whole class at the party, plus their baseball team, neighbors, etc (no parents). At a roller skating party or gymnastics party, the kids only have about an hour to skate and play before it's time for pizza and cake.  Then, the party's over.
