2. Start by dancing around the living room as loudly as you can to wake up the parental units.

4. But when it's time to open presents, you spring into action.

5. Win back some points by giving some love to the smaller gifts.

6. Play it cool like the calm before the storm.

7. Then, quickly unleash some sick fist pumps after you rip open the gift you've been waiting for. / Via

Employ a younger sibling to back you up with supporting pumps.

8. Stop, feign composure, then give 'em the old shocked eagle face.

9. Throw some complimentary somersaults of disbelief.

Don't let them make you stop — don't submit to exorcisms.

11. Then, jump up and dance with every awkward bone in your body.

Don't break eye contact. Make them bear witness.

12. Grab the nearest table and flip it in victory.

Try to do it outside to a table that can handle this level of freakout finale.

13. Finally, ignore the shouts of terror your freakout has caused and give everyone a hug.

Hugs solve everything. Old people love hugs.
