Lovely Vintage Christmas Family Photos From the 1960s

Christmas in the 1960s was in many respects quite similar to Christmas celebrations today: family gatherings, laughter and fun. But whereas today the celebrations are often centered around the presents and multimedia, in the 1960s Christmas was much more homespun.


The days of post war rationing and austerity were still recent memories so, especially in the early years of the decade, 1960s Christmases still had a feeling of frugality when compared to those of today.

Here below is a set of lovely photos from Flickr members that shows family portraits for Christmas from the 1960s.

  1. "Lovely". Yeah. In the same way that John Wayne Gacy was lovely.

  2. I love these glimpses into real families and seeing the diversity among the portraits. Genuine people in contrast to the polished facade many create these days.
