Merry Morticia

Fifty-one years ago in the New Yorker the Addams Family struggled to cope with the Christmas season. Then in 1964 "The Addams Family" television series began its run and these characters created by Charles Addams were no longer permitted in the magazine.
Charles Addams, "Suddenly, I have a dreadful urge to be merry."
The New Yorker, December 15, 1962, p. 38
