She also learns a little bit about the true meaning of the holiday.
Winnie the Pooh: Seasons of Giving – The adventure begins once upon a cold and blustery day in the Hundred Acre Wood when Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Rabbit set out on a quest for winter — a favorite season they seem to have missed. And that leads to a wild search for the perfect ingredients for a festive Thanksgiving feast, and finally to Christmas, and a surprise visit from a special friend.
