This home movie from the Frick Collection captures the family preparing for the Christmas holiday: Linda and company search for mistletoe and take their newly cut tree home. The film winds up with the family on the porch of their home in the Houston area. The Frick Collection was donated to TAMI by John Frick and includes home movies of family Christmases, camping trips, and outings in Houston, as well as trips to local Texas events, including the Belton Parade, Howdy Roo Chili Cookoff, Mosquito Festival, Texas Renaissance Fair, Montgomery County Cookoff, Texas Girl Chili Cookoff, and the Westheimer Art Festival.
