Here is Jennifer’s description of this Fabulous cake:
It is the Christmas season, and Charlie Brown is depressed with the over-commercialization of Christmas and his inability to grasp what Christmas is all about. Brown’s depression and aggravation only get exacerbated by the goings-on in the neighborhood. His sister Sally, asks him to write her letter to Santa Claus. When she tells him to put in a request for money (“tens and twenties”), Charlie Brown becomes even more dismayed. Charlie Brown arrives at the play rehearsals, but he is unable to control the situation as the uncooperative kids are more interested in modernizing the play. Thinking the play requires “the proper mood,” Charlie Brown decides they need a Christmas tree. Charlie Brown zeroes in on the only real tree on the lot—a tiny sapling. Linus is reluctant about Charlie Brown’s choice, but Charlie Brown is convinced that after decorating it, it will be just right for the play. They return to the auditorium with the tree, at which point the children (particularly the girls and Snoopy) ridicule, then laugh at Charlie Brown before walking away. Charlie Brown quietly picks up the little tree and walks out of the auditorium, intending to take the tree home to decorate and show the others it will work in the play. He puts an ornamental ball on the top of his tree; the branch, with the ball still on it, promptly flops over to one side instead of remaining upright, prompting him to declare “I’ve killed it” and run off in disgust at his perpetual failure. Linus goes up to the tree and gently props the drooping branch back to its upright position, wrapping his security blanket around the tree. After they reconsider their previous stance, they add the remaining decorations from Snoopy’s doghouse to the tree. Charlie Brown returns surprised and realizes the true meaning of Christmas.
