15 Vivid Colorized Photos That Bring the Vintage Cheer of Holidays Past to Life

There is something about this time of year that inspires a look backward, not just on the previous year but on a feeling of generosity, an electric charge in the air, that has persisted over decades of Decembers. From the messy aftermath of a holiday sale at Macy’s to mail carriers weighed down with packages to Santas straightening their beards, TIME commissioned Sanna Dullaway to colorize vintage photos of the holiday season. The newly vivid images have a painterly feel, like eerily crisp Normal Rockwell paintings. But they are also timeless, imbued with the same warmth and joy those who celebrate hope will characterize the season each time it returns. 1.
