This home movie from 1963 appears to come straight out of a classic holiday film. The Blount family of Longview enjoy a white Christmas that year, with one child playing in the snow with the family pet. Later, the family opens presents. Younger son Jeb receives a football signed by the Texas Longhorns 1963 National Championship football team (and a uniform to match). Older son Ralph, on the other hand, is given an air rifle, which he practices shooting and the end of the film.
