Summary

Burns Christmas family scenes including: a young girl sitting at at table writing a Christmas card, licking and sticking a stamp onto the envelope; a woman raising a glass of sherry to the camera: two children playing in a festively decorated living room; a girl opening a present; and a boy playing with a train set. The family are seen sitting down for their Christmas meal. The children pull crackers aided by their mother. The family move into the living room to sing songs whilst another plays a piano (dark shots).
