Christmas In Hollywood

Leave it to Slim Aarons to take the most decadent and playful Christmas photo ever. 

I'd love to spend Christmas day floating in the water.  The photo was taken in 1954.  Slim's wife, Rita, lounges on a raft in her swimsuit.   Who needs jewelry when you're surrounded by shiny ornaments?  

But the tree!  The Christmas tree planted in the shallow end is about as tall (taller?) than their home. I can't even imagine how they decorated it all the way to the top.    

The Hollywood sign in the distance? Swoon.

Seems like CA winter weather is getting colder than it was back in the day.
