A compilation of two short amateur films of a fun-loving family in summer time and at Christmas.
On a sunny day a family feeds chickens, checks for eggs in a hen coop and plays together on a large haystack.
Next we see a table laden with many dishes, one a Christmas cake with piped icing reading XMAS 1948. The family enjoy the main meal, cake and jelly. Two women wash and dry the dirty dishes while the other family members drink and smoke in the siting room. A cold buffet spread is laid out and some light-hearted drinking games and pulling of faces follows as one man pretends to get progressively drunk. The family watch on laughing.
