Putting up her tree, Connie Brooks corrects her landlady, and informs her its called a Friendship tree, instead. Mrs Davis tells about her absent minded sister Angela. What does Connie have planned? Just staying home for a quiet evening while all her friends go out of town on their celebrations.
Dozing In the rocking chair with Minerva the cat, Connie finds a boy at the door, selling Christmas trees. He won’t take no for an answer, and drives a hard bargain. As Connie sat, rocked, and looked at the tree she just bought, it seemed to have a glow about it. Her dozing comes to an end when Walter Denton shows up full of holiday cheer.
After exchanging a few sentiments, others come knocking at her door. More of her friends stop by, including her as part of their holiday festivities. The Conklin, and even Mr Boynton have had a sudden change of plans. Soon the glow of that Christmas tree affects the guests with added cheer, and festive attitudes. Including Boynton putting the moves on Connie for a change. Its all too good, is it just a dream? Maybe… maybe not.
