the things that become important to kids? My DS (16) cannot remember a Christmas tree that did not have our "lites in motion" on it. The tree that we were given is prelit, and is all solid, colored lights. It's absolutely gorgeous!! He got all upset and asked me if we were gonna put the other lights on it. DH and I told him that we were planning to put them on the porch rails. Nope. They are on the tree!! His logic-it's not a Christmas tree without those lights. I don't know what he's going to do when he grows up and moves out. He's not getting those lights!!.........lol. I wonder what other holiday traditions are really important to him? You can bet I'll be watching him throughout the season to see what he gravitates toward. What traditions do your children balk at giving up?
