Before I was born, my sister and brother used to sleep under the glowing lights of the Christmas tree. They would also put Lego men on the branches to “guard” the presents. As I grew up, I had never done any of those things because my brother had moved out and took his Legos with him and my sister got older and didn’t want to sleep by the tree anymore.

The Christmas of 2010 was my favorite because I got to enjoy all of these things. My brother came over on Christmas Eve night and we opened one present each, as a tradition. We then watched a movie and put out our sleeping bags around the tree. After that, my brother and I put the Lego men on the tree, so we ended up going to sleep around 11 p.m. But later that night, my sister, mom, brother and I all seemed to wake up around midnight, so we got up and opened presents. We stayed up until about 1:30 a.m., and then went back to sleep.
