This 1967 home movie captures the Courtney family celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas in Vidor. The family first heads outdoors for a Thanksgiving picnic. Family members can be observed filling their plates, eating, and swatting away the cameraman. Later, the Courtneys regroup for a Christmas gathering, with everyone sitting together and looking at color Polaroids, which had been introduced just a few years earlier in 1963.
