Story Summary

When Old Fox comes to invite Dragon to spend Christmas with them, Dragon suspects that all he wants is the warmth of his flame. Besides Dragon is tired and settles in for his nap. Tens of tens of tens of Christmases come and go until Dragon finally awakes to find a changed world, a sadder, decayed world with Young Fox, a far descendant of Old Fox rushing home to a meager Christmas, which he, never-the-less, invites Dragon to come share.
