A vintage Mac Christmas

Mac Christmas history

After the release of the first Macintosh in 1984, it didn't take long for a rich culture to sprout up around Apple's distinctive machine. The Mac's unique capabilities inspired a loyalty and passion that pushed the Macintosh Way into every aspect of life, including the traditionally non-digital holiday season.

To celebrate that season, let's take a look back at some early Christmas-themed Macintosh art and ephemera. Along the way, you'll also see a few modern holiday homages to this classic platform--now almost 29 years old--and witness a can-do computer which refused to sit out even the most sacred of Western traditions.
