There is no denying that Christmas is the most magical time of the year.
But, according to one mother, there is very an easy way to add some magic on the morning of December 25th.
Claire Hoops accepted tik tak and posted a video explaining how she hides the entrance to her living room with wrapping paper before finishing off with a bow.
When her children run downstairs to see if Santa Claus was there, they have to break through the wrapping paper to get to their presents.
Along with the video, she wrote: “Save it for Christmas Eve, wrapping the door like a Christmas present is a very cheap way to add some magic to Christmas and it’s so easy to do.
“I just use Cellotape, which is recyclable paper.”
The post has since gone viral, racking up a whopping 497,000 views and hundreds of comments, with many admitting they’ll be trying out the idea later that evening.
“Oh, I’ll do it!! I don’t have a door to the living room,” wrote one of them.

The second wrote: “We have been doing this for years but now everyone has grown up, but I still do it haha!”
The third praised: “I like it!”
Meanwhile, a fourth added, “I’m doing this so that my brothers and sisters don’t go down the stairs ahead of time because you’ll see if they go down because the wrapping paper will tear.”
And then he commented: “I do it – it’s great!”
Elsewhere, some parents admitted that they are already using the hack to keep their kids from peeking.
“I’ve been doing this for 16 years because I have a glass paneled door and I don’t want kids to peek,” said one.
Another commented, “We do it so they don’t peek!”
