Watts Family Films: Christmas 1977, Epsom (1978)
One elderly relative falls asleep, but the kids still have a ball opening their Christmas presents in the Epsom suburbs.
From the collection of:
Plentiful present opening on the carpet in Epsom, with grandparents looking on – all except “nonno” (Italian for grandfather), who appears to drop off. New toys include a nurse outfit for the girl and cowboy suit for the boy, a Muppets LP, an assault rifle, bicycle and ride along car. Not a bad haul! Bike and car are later given a quick test run in the hallway.
