Family Christmas Party 1956 American

1956 American Family Christmas Party

This 8mm home movie film footage from 1956 is of a family Christmas.  The family has gathered to celebrate with food and gifts.  The family seems to be a typical American family with a Christmas tree, a new bike with training wheels and a new doll for the little girl.  They follow up the party by posing for pictures on the front porch.

I really love how the older family members shield their faces from the camera.  It’s amazing how older generations always seem to shy away from technology.
