When I was a kid one of my favorite parts of December was the night we got to sleep under the Christmas tree. We did it every year I can remember, until I was "too cool" to participate anymore.
There would be eggnog and Christmas stories and then my whole family would curl up in their sleeping bags and sleep on the living room floor for the night under the twinkling Christmas tree lights.
This year I decided Nathan was old enough we could start the same sort of tradition here.
Since Grandpa Zoom wasn't coming for Christmas this year he came up the weekend before.
Nathan L-O-V-E-D this new tradition. And I think Grandpa Zoom loved reliving some Christmas memories while making new ones with a new generation.
* I still have at least one more Childhood tradition I hope to revive before the seasons out- stay tuned*
