Description: Christmas party in a living room (there are Christmas cards hung up around the room), with middle-aged people singing and dancing and having fun, amongst them the Murray family. A woman wears a large tutu-like hat, sings and dances with a man wearing a white hat and striped suit (Bill Perrin). They are using various items to enhance their routine: an umbrella, and a wicker bag. At one point the entire party sings together in a circle, led by woman in white dress. The older women wear horn-rimmed glasses typical of the 1960's; one woman with platinum blonde hair wears a bright pink top.
