Christmas Tree #1:   The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

New York City’s Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is the biggest, brightest, most famous Christmas tree on our planet. It’s lighting is an annual television event. The tree is nearly always a Norway spruce and grown by enthusiasts hoping for the honor of having their tree chosen to be displayed at Rockefeller Center. The event takes place just after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. (Source:

Christmas Tree #2:   The Charlie Brown Tree from the Christmas Special

Charlie Brown: “This little green one here seems to need a home.”

Linus Van Pelt: “I don’t know, Charlie Brown. Remember what Lucy said? This doesn’t seem to fit the modern spirit.”

Charlie Brown: “I don’t care. We’ll decorate it and it’ll be just right for our play. Besides, I think it needs me.”

    Later . . .

Linus Van Pelt: “I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.”

Christmas Tree #3:   The Whoville Tree from How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Cindy Lou Who: “Santie Claus, why? Why are you taking our Christmas tree, why?”

Narrator: But do you know, the Grinch was so smart and so slick, that he thought up a lie and he thought it up quick.

Grinch: “Why my sweet little tot,”

Narrator: the fake Santie Claus lied,

Grinch: “there’s a light on this tree that won’t light on one side. So I’m taking it home to my work shop, my dear. I’ll fix it up there, then I’ll bring it back here.”

Narrator: And his fib fooled the child. So he patted her head, he gave her a drink and he sent her to bed. And when Cindy Lou Who was in bed with her cup, he crupt to the chimney and stuffed the tree up.

Christmas Tree #4:   The Blue Room Christmas Tree at the White House

Although decorated trees can be found throughout the White House at Christmastime, the Blue Room is the traditional location for the “primary” Christmas tree. The tree is cut to 18 feet and erected in the center of the room, then wired to a hook in the ceiling to ensure that it remains stable. Then it can be decorated with the year’s theme ornaments and decorations. (Source: White House Museum)

    Hi Ray, I only got three out of 5 correctly. Kathie and I both picked 5 as your family tree.

  2. Sharon Gamble says:

    I thought your family tree was the tree from It’s a Wonderful Life! It looks TV movie-like…very pretty. 🙂

  3. Rachael says:

    Well the stockings that say Sammy and Ramon is a little give away! 🙂

  4. Sharon Gamble says:

    Now see what happens when you still have good eyesight – you see details. Of course, even when I did have good eyesight I wasn’t too terrific with details. sheepish grin!

  5. Ray Fowler says:

    Barrie – Good job! Three out of five isn’t bad. Merry Christmas to you and Kathie.

    Sharon – So you didn’t read the kids’ names on the stockings. No big deal! (But we did get a good laugh out of it!) And thanks for thinking our tree was from It’s A Wonderful Life. I love that movie! Merry Christmas!

    Rachael – Yes, I guess that was a bit of a giveaway. But only for those like you with sharp eyes! Merry Christmas!

    So, did anyone guess all five correctly?

  6. Rachael says:

    I didn’t get the Grinch one. I love It’s a wonderful life! Our family can’t get through that one with out at least a few of us crying!

  7. Ray Fowler says:

    Rachael – From the people I have talked to who tried this, the Grinch tree was the hardest one to guess. I thought the Blue Room tree was going to be the hardest.
