Top 5 TV Christmas Trees   

‘Tis the season for all things Christmas-y, but I thought I’d save the Top 5 Christmas episodes for next week, and start with my Top 5 TV Christmas Trees this week!

Mostly picked for their memorability rather than their looks, here are my Top 5 TV Christmas Trees:

  1. 5xmastreeThe Charlie Brown Christmas Tree (A Charlie Brown Christmas) – This is probably the first TV Christmas Tree that I remember, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.
  2. The Festivus Pole (Seinfeld 9-10; The Strike) – As someone who’s had her share of less-than-great Christmas’, I can appreciate a holiday for the rest of us.
  3. The Modern Family Tree Removal (Modern Family 1-10; Undeck the Halls) – Less about the tree and more about the fact that they dragged it – decorations and – out of the house!
  4. The Walsh’s Spray Painted Tree (Beverly Hills 90210 2-18; A Walsh Family Christmas)– A true classic! What happens when a family moves from snowy Minnesota to the land of eternal sun? They spray-paint their brown tree green!
  5. The Echolls White Tree (Veronica Mars 1-10; An Echolls Family Christmas) Because it’s the biggest tackiest tree I’ve ever seen!

    Charlie Brown’s tree would also top my list. And, amusingly, I’d go with the other tree in that VM episode. More because of the thought of Keith and Veronica decorating it with all her old hand made ornaments at the beginning of the episode.

    And speaking of people decorating their trees, Buffy standing next to her tree hanging ornaments is one of my favorite shots in “Amends.” We only see the tree briefly but it deserves a place on my list because I always think of it when thinking of TV-related Christmas.

    Cindy Lou’s tree in How the Grinch Stole Christmas also sticks out in my mind. When I think of Christmas, I think of the shot of the Grinch sneaking out of the house with the tree on his shoulder.

    And for my fifth, I think I have to go with you and put The Festivus Pole on the list.
