1950s Christmas video Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Email Newsletter Posted by: pam kueber • December 19, 2009 Rebecca found this Christmas video…no sound, but the images are classic. And, as she says: “The color is terrific. The barkcloth! The red leather chair!” Source: Kodachrome Christmas from Jeff Altman on Vimeo.

I think the parents are the first couple shown with the kids sitting on their laps, Dad comfortable in casual shirt, mom looking happy but a wee bit exhausted. The second couple playing ring-around-the-rosie looks like the mom’s sister and BIL, dressed up for the visit. Speaking of which, what a great maternity outfit! Really jazzed to see the doll in the background. My sister and I got that same doll for Christmas, probably about the same year.

We all have similar images somewhere, whether on film or photographs. The little girls all in red, with baby mad at everybody, throwing a tantrum, then everyone playing “ring around the rosy” (at least it looked like) was just too darn cute! Thanks!
