Holidays With Carole

Carole Landis Christmas

Carole  loved celebrating the holidays! She always threw a big party on Mother's Day, Easter, and Christmas. There were lavish decorations, famous guests, and lots of delicious food. Her annual New Year's Eve party was her favorite because the next day was her birthday. It was tradition to of open her presents shortly after midnight. Carole said "Our family is great on celebrations. I go all sentimental on my birthday and on holidays. Isn't it marvelous?"

To celebrate Christmas 1947 she and her husband Horace threw a pool party her friends. Carole even dressed up as Santa. Guests included her former boyfriend Franchot Tone, Betty Garrett, and Roy Calhoun.

Carole always served a big Turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. She was not a very good cook so her housekeeper usually did the cooking.
