Collection 6: Vintage Christmas Photos

It is Christmas Eve! I'm working part of the day, then I'll spend the evening at my in-law's house, hopefully playing games and making the pugs wear their Christmas outfits. I thought I would post some of my favorites from my vintage Christmas photo collection! I love getting inspiration from old photos like these.

A pretty amazing Christmas card. Look at that scary Santa head!

It looks like "Merry Christmas" was spray painted on those curtains!

I LOVE that foil door. The back says "Xmas 1968 + Dixie"

I also love trees completely covered with tinsel. If I didn't have cats I would do that.

This looks like an office Christmas party. I think that is a woman Santa! And look at the pin up poster in the back! I really wish I knew what was really going on in this picture. Where are they? What is that equipment in the back?

Travis brought me this picture. It says "Margaret and I did get mink stoles for Xmas so we thought we'd do a little modeling" and it it from 1960.
I also have a few of my dad's Christmas photos from when he was little! You know I love that.

A tinsel covered tree! My dad is the little guy in the front.I love the checkered jacket!

My dad and his brother Steve with a creepy Santa! What is with the weird slack arm?

I have always loved this picture. I'm pretty sure this is them trying on their Christmas gifts. Look at those buckaroos! And my uncles scuffed up shoes!

A later picture. I love this for so many reasons. My dad's weird face, the glasses, that intriguing santa up on the bookcase, and is that a paint by number Jesus I spy?
I hope you are having a great holiday no matter what you are celebrating, even if it is just a day off! I can't wait to eat delicious food and see my family and open presents and make Phyllis wear her Santa hat.


  1. I love this post. Especially your family shots and the one with Dixie and the foil door. Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family!

  2. Awesome collection, I collect vintage photos too but haven't fulled delved into the Christmas category. My dad is a product of the '50s so he always advocated for tons of tinsel on our tree too! I'm really hoping that your dad saved some of the awesome decor/items from these photos, especially that paint by number Jesus.

  3. Tinsel! THATS what my tree is missing! love it love it love it. Great compilation of pictures.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
