The Quintuplets' Christmas

What it's like on Christmas morning in the nursery of the world's most famous children, the Dionne Quintuplets, as they scramble for the presents under their tree. Cecile (back) and Marie are at right, one is hidden behind the two at left - you see her feet protruding. The Quints refused this year for the first time to have photos made while they were in their pajamas; at eight years old, they think it isn't dignified.

The Quints are still living at their nursery, across the road from the family residence; their brothers and sisters joined them later. Christmas is not as festive an occasion among French Canadians as is January 1: that's the time for big family celebrations.
