This 1960s home movie captures three prominent celebrations, enjoyed by members of the Holt family of Sugar Land. The first scene shows the children as they open presents on Christmas. Some of the presents include a bicycle, a doll, and a baby carriage. The second scene changes seasons and shows a young girl searching for eggs on Easter. The last clip includes images of a teenage couple as they prepare for prom. A young man greets his date with a corsage, and then the two welcome more guests into the house.
