Playing Atari on Christmas Morning of 1978

This gem was uploaded by Charles Owens and features him and his family playing what think is a brand new Atari VCS on Christmas morning in 1978. You can almost feel the magic of novelty in the air. I wish I could turn the TV towards the camera to find out what they are playing, but maybe not knowing is more magical.
