Charlie Brown tree
 n.— «Two charming young women bragged to me (within 12 hours and 50 miles of each other) that they each have a “Charlie Brown” tree—small, skinny, needleless, crooked, with only half-a-string of lights and two ornament balls on it. “Furthermore,” they continued triumphantly, “everybody who comes in sees it and says, “I love your tree. I want one just like it.”» —“It’s beginning to look, sound, smell like Christmas” by Lucy Miele Rockford Register Star (Illinois) Dec. 7, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
