Well, Peyton Manning can tell you. Manning recently talked about his childhood Christmas memories on Live With Kelly & Ryan.

“Shockingly, a lot of sports involved around Christmas time,” Manning said.

That’s fitting, considering you had three Pro Bowl quarterbacks and two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks in one household. Of course, Peyton and Eli would both grow up to be in the Pro Bowl multiple times and win a combined four Super Bowls. Their dad, Archie, was a two-time Pro Bowler.

“Christmas gifts usually involved some type of new football uniform, a jersey, a helmet,” Peyton said.

And it wasn’t just gifts. Consider Christmas time for the Manning’s a time to open gifts, celebrate, and play some football.

“Always an afternoon football game, my dad was great with the video camera filming the whole movies,” Peyton said.
