There's an air of excitement in this amateur film from 1967 showing a family's preparations for Christmas - as well as the big day itself. The cake is stirred, the pudding is boiled and the children are seen busily opening present after present. We even see Grandma and Grandad in bed opening their gifts. Meanwhile, Mum gets a dressing gown and Dad gets cufflinks while the children stage a puppet presentation.
