It is nearly Christmas, but Ricky's family doesn't have a Christmas tree yet. Mom and Dad have both been way too busy to get one. Finally, Ricky insists his dad accompany him to the tree market. At first, Dad resists, but thanks to Ricky's enthusiasm it doesn't take long for Dad to thaw out completely.
