One of a series of four photographs documenting the event.
Photograph caption dated December 20, 1961 reads, "Activities at the Johnny Seven home in Granada Hills are numerous around Christmas time. As in any household, there is cooking to be done, packages to be wrapped and the tree to be decorated. Mrs. Seven mixes up a batch of holiday cookies, top photo, as Laura and Johnny impatiently await their completion, and Seven supervises from doorway. The family gathers around the dinner table, middle left photo, to toast the holiday season. Laura, Johnny and the family's dog, Georgie, middle right photo, inspect some of the packages under the tree. The Seven family, including Georgie, photo below, are shown around their finished tree. The wrapping of Christmas packages has also been completed."
