Guess How Much I Love You: Christmas in July consists of three episodes featuring the adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare (voice of Matthew Jacob Wayne) and his friends.
In the first episode, Christmas to the Moon and Back, Little Nutbrown Hare and his friends Little Field Mouse (voice of Allie Carlton) and Little Grey Squirrel (voice of Stuart Allen) are collecting food for a Christmas feast. When most of their food is accidentally washed down the river, the friends set off to retrieve it. They come across a lost bear cub searching for his mother. While helping the bear cub, the friends lose their way in a snowstorm and learn that the most important part of Christmas isn’t food or decorations but sharing the day with people you love.
In the second episode, The Holly Branch, Little Nutbrown Hare discovers that someone has left him the gift of a holly branch. While trying to discover who left the branch, he locates the bush itself. With a little help from his friends, Little Nutbrown Hare decides to give the same gift and bring the same joy to all the animals in the meadow.
In the final episode, Feast Day, Little Nutbrown Hare and his friends struggle to find the perfect spot and enough food for a feast day. When they finally bring everything together, they realise they have just enough food and their chosen spot turns out to be perfect. But ultimately the evening is special not because they have plenty to eat and the beautiful Northern Lights to watch, but because they have friends and family to enjoy it with.
