Everyday until Christmas, I am going to try to post a picture from a past family Christmas.
This is the family opening their presents in 1948. What a mess! It looks like our typical Christmas. One habit that the family had was every one opened their presents at the same time. No one could see what the others received nor see their reaction to the present. After I married, I suggested that we open them one person at a time. For a few years we drew names to see who would go first, second and so forth. After the kids came along they went first and then we went by age. Oldest was the last one. On the left is my father, and grandmother. My mother is sitting in front of the tree with a sweater in her hand. Grandpa is in the corner chair holding up something that looks like it could be a pair of pants. On the right is my grandmother’s sister, Frances, and her daughter Pat. You can see my play pen in the picture. Missing from the picture is my Uncle Russ so he is probably taking the picture.
