This 1960s home movie features a large Christmas party hosted by Mary Louise Martinez’s brother, Manuel. It shows a few of Martinez’s granddaughters opening and playing with their presents, and older members of the family starting up the party with dancing around an oversized bottle of champagne. The film also captures scenes of the family posing for portraits, trying out a bicycle in the neighborhood, and having dinner.
