This 1980 home movie captures the Leyva family of Texas City as they enjoy holiday festivities with friends and family members. The film begins with a young Nicky (Frank) as he sits and smiles in front of an illuminated Christmas tree. The family then gathers on the patio, filled with decorations and gifts. Santa Claus makes a brief appearance, though the real star is the Santa piñata, ruthlessly bashed by the eager children.
