Vintage Easter Photographs: From Charming to Terrifying

Posted on 05 April 2015

 

I am slightly obsessed with vintage holiday photographs. I love them all; the adorable, the fashionable, the silly, the elegant and even the "so weird they're almost scary" photos.  In honor of Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail tomorrow - I thought I would share some of my favorites!

For some reason - a lot of old holiday photographs show women wearing some type of ears and/or skimpy outfits and/or sitting in some holiday object - pumpkins, hearts, and in this case.. Eggs!

I particularly love the holiday "behind the scenes" photographs like these from chocolate Easter egg factories!

Then there are the holiday children.. Like these two holding a giant Easter egg! 

 

Some are just adorable and others.. 

I'd be terrified too!

There are always the photos of various parades or parties..
