History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Drunken Ski Party

I'm sure quite a few folks out there are having some regrets this morning, maybe trying to forget some parts of last night, untagging those embaressing photos on FB.... yeah, the people in the past were just the same. This isn't New Year's, but I think most of the people at this ski party in 1942 are pretttyy smashed... smashed enough to totally forget they had a Life photographer around while they made idiots of themselves....

It starts out pretty normally, with a ski conga line... Source

Some ski tug-of-war, sure, why not. Source

Then a snowball fight... Source

Then they started drinking. Source

I have no idea why everyone thought it was a swell idea to don nightshirts for the hill, but they so did. Source

Nightshirt skiing! Yeahh! Source

Aaand someone decided it would be a good idea to try the obstacle course. Source

Which worked about as well as you'd expect. Source

Oh yes, they are so sober. Source

Then jumping. Source

Then ski-leapfrogging. Source

Which some were better at than others. Source

But lots of fun. Source

Nothing absurd about being photographed lying on the snow in skis and a nightshirt. Source

This is fairly cute and reasonably sane... Source

But don't worry, the sanity didn't last. Source

Skiing down stairs takes a toll on some. Source

And some more drinking. Source

The party continues... Source

I would love to know what came before this. Source

I think even the photographer may have had a few by this point... Source

Someone's untagging this on FB in the morning. Source
