What Kind of a Tree is That?

Happy August! I can't believe it's already August...that's crazy! In theory, we should be done with our "Christmas in July" week, but since we started late, we'll finish it out in August. Who says Christmas can't be celebrated all year?!
So, yesterday I said we were doing a project based off of one of our favorite movies. Unfortunately, that project didn't pan out, so today's is based on an all-time classic. Can you guess what movie it is, based on the title? It's A Charlie Brown Christmas!

When Charlie Brown becomes concerned about how materialistic Christmas has gotten, Lucy suggests he should be the director of their pageant. When Charlie and Linus go find a tree for the show, they come back with the "Charlie Browniest" tree of all. Everyone involved in the show complains about it, because it "doesn't seem to fit the modern spirit". Like the good friend he is, Linus shows Charlie, and everyone else, the real meaning of Christmas, and tells him, "I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It's not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love."
And of course, Charlie Brown's best friend, Snoopy, makes an appearance! The inside of the card reads, "Merry Christmas, one and all!" 
Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for another project, based on a true classic!
