This home movie from 1968 captures the Joseph family celebrating Easter and the winter holiday season. Following scenes of the kids hunting for Easter eggs, the family sleds and plays in the snow. As part of the festivities, the Josephs also attend the parade for the 34th annual Southwestern Sun Carnival (now known as the Sun Bowl Carnival) in downtown El Paso. Many very elaborate floats pass by, all with 1968’s theme: Wonderful World of Disney. Footage of the family opening presents on Christmas morning is also included.
