Where's SANTA?

A vintage snapshot of, I believe, children of military families. Your challenge is to find Santa.

This is my submission for the holiday Sepia Saturday.

Happy Holidays to All.


  1. I found Santa pretty easily, but those boys in plaid are almost lost in the carpet. Merry Christmas!

  2. Great old photo, I definitely had to enlarge it. Had no problem finding Santa but had to get my magnifying glass out because for a second I thought one of those children was my husband!

    Happy Holidays!

  3. Great photo and finding Santa wasn't too much of a problem. The parents don't seem to be too interested in participating in the picture.
    Merry Christmas to you!

  4. Maybe the parents all had a moment to themselves as the children were all into their thing. Yes the two in front almost blend into the carpet. I would say the tree was in the 40 or early 50s much like the one I have posted. Happy holidays.

  5. Santa was an easy find!!
    That's a lot of kids there.
    Santa had his hands full!!
    Happy Holidays!!

  6. Lucky find.
    It amazes me that people don't keep these wonderful photos.

  7. Plaid certainly was big then, and nothing says American better than PLAID. Santa seems to be dressed in camouflage. A LOUD festive time was had by all! My best wishes to you for a happy holiday.

  8. I had to look hard to find him, not so easy in B&W. I wonder how long it took to get them all to sit still.

    Happy New Year!

  9. Yup, the carpet is a doozie! Cute kids, though; it must have been chaos when things got unwrapped!

  10. I see him! He's the man in the big white beard! Happy new year to you!
