While decorating the house for the holidays, a father finds an old box of family photos and takes a trip down memory lane with his kids. He and his own father used to get their Christmas trees at the same lot every year and a Polaroid inspires him to finally to bring his kids to the same place. With a tradition to uphold, the family takes off to find their perfect tree, cataloguing every moment of the journey with the daughter's camera. Unfortunately, pulling up to Santa's Lane doesn't exactly meet expectations when the family realizes the place has been abandoned for some time. Dad is disappointed, but a tree and ornaments have to be bought no matter what. After finding a perfect tree elsewhere, the four stop at Cost Plus World Market for ornaments, where a frame sparks an ingenious idea from the daughter. On Christmas morning, dad receives his gift: a framed Polaroid of him and his son carrying their own tree, staying true to the tradition the family created so many years ago.
