Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth. Set aside.  

Unroll the crescent roll dough on the lined baking sheet.

Use a sharp knife to cut 2-inch strips on each side of the sheet, leaving the center of the sheet intact.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the center of the dough sheet, then top the cream cheese with cherry pie filling.

Fold the strips over the top of the filling, crossing each side in the center to create a braided look.

Brush the top of the dough with melted butter and sprinkle the white, red, and green sugar on top. 

Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until the dough, is golden brown and cooked through.
