The decorated Christmas tree became a central element of private family Christmas celebrations in the 19th century. During the Franco-Prussian War of 1870/1871, the Prussian king had Christmas trees delivered to the shelters and military hospitals and made it popular in France. That is why the decorated Christmas tree is a central element in both German and French private films in the 20th century.

Context and analysis


Card game with guests at Christmas (Foto: LFS)

he five-minute silent film in black and white was recorded in 8mm amateur format. It shows a rather unusual Christmas party in Ettenheim in 1938. The couple seem to have no children and instead invited two older women who may be related. First the three women play cards; in the middle of the table is a crystal pastry bowl. You have a lot of fun with it or at least stage the happiness in front of the camera. The scene is lit, but a little underexposed overall. Indoor shots were a challenge for private filmmakers because the footage wasn't very sensitive to light. Additional light had to be provided accordingly, which should illuminate the room as evenly as possible and not just create islands of light. The camera pans slowly from right to left and is probably on a tripod because the picture itself is pretty stable. In the background hangs a decorated wooden board, on which other bowls and trinkets from the household are placed, and on the right three frames of collected butterflies. After the first minute, a German shepherd comes into the picture from the left, which also gets a place. For the next one he has to shake hands and perform other tricks. He always calls for new cookies with his bark. When he stands on his hind legs, he disappears from the picture. When the ladies resume playing cards, he lies down next to the table, satisfied. Finally, the filmmaker himself comes into the picture, lights a short cigar and participates in the game. He gets up again, checks the camera and then sits down at the table again.

The decorated Christmas tree became a central element of private family Christmas celebrations in the 19th century. During the Franco-Prussian War of 1870/1871, the Prussian king had Christmas trees delivered to the shelters and military hospitals and made it popular in France. That is why the decorated Christmas tree is a central element in both German and French private films in the 20th century.
