Anderson Cooper 360, Thursday 12/27/12

Randi Kaye was again the guest anchor for AC360 this evening so will continue with our vintage Cooper family Christmas cards and related photos. Tonight we're sharing the Cooper family Christmas card from 1968 when Anderson was 18 months old.

Here's another picture from that year, this time it's with Gloria, Wyatt and their sons in front of the family Christmas tree.

The iconic Gloria Vanderbilt swan is in the background of the Cooper families 1968 Christmas card and we found a similar swan in a McCall's home fashion book published in Spring 1967 entitled "Gloria Vanderbilt Designs For Your Home"

Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin Back to Co-Host CNN’s New Year’s Eve Coverage
Dynamic Duo Will be Live from Times Square Beginning at 10 p.m. ET
Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin are back to co-host CNN’s coverage of the New Year’s Eve celebrations on Monday, Dec. 31, from 10 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. (ET). Bringing back their fun and unpredictable New Year’s Eve countdown program for the 6th consecutive year, Cooper and Griffin will ring in the new year live from NYC’s Time Square for CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin.”
“As always, I await New Year’s Eve with Kathy Griffin with grave reservations and tremendous fear, and I want to apologize in advance to anyone she may offend/assault/attempt to kiss” said Cooper.
“I don’t know what Anderson has been doing this past year. I assume he has been sitting, eating Bon Bons in his mother’s apartment watching reality TV, while I was helping spread democracy in Egypt or Syria or whichever” said Griffin. “Oh, and did I mention we’re giving away puppies at midnight?”
CNN correspondents will provide reports from celebrations across the country and around the world. Isha Sesay will join Cooper and Griffin from the crowds in Times Square. Correspondents John Zarrella and Gary Tuchman are on opposite ends of the East Coast, with Zarrella counting down from Key West, Florida and Tuchman from Eastport, Maine.
At 12:30 a.m (ET), Anderson and Kathy will hand off to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin at Jackson Square in New Orleans, Louisiana and HLN’s Susan Hendricks at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee for the countdown to midnight, Central time.
Viewers who tweet using #CNNNYE or post on, will have the chance to see their New Year’s Eve message on air. Questions for Anderson and Kathy can also be posted on the AC360 Facebook page or tweeted with the #CNNNYE hashtag and the hosts will select a few questions to answer during the show.
Leading up to “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin” will be “All the Best, All the Worst 2012,” an Anderson Cooper 360° special airing at 8 p.m. (ET). The special will count down to the new year by recounting the old one with humor, insight, and fun. CNN correspondent Tom Foreman will be joined by Isha Sesay, actress and comedian Aisha Tyler, all around smart guy Ben Stein, social and political commentator and radio host Pete Dominick, Sirius-XM’s Julie Mason, and the cake boss, Buddy Valastro. They will join Foreman in shining a spotlight on the highlights and lowlights of the past twelve months in politics, pop culture, the economy, and entertainment.

There's something oddly Victorian about the family Christmas photos, more than just the sailor outfits, they seem like from a much earlier time not the 1960s.

I also can't help thinking Gloria had a staff of 15 to decorate the tree and that it took four days. For years now, I've only been using four or five different garlands or decorated strings on my tree because it's so time-consuming. So it's a rather minimalist tree but still looks good. And so fast and easy to un-decorate.

I haven't been paying any attention to the Randi Kaye anchored 360s. Hope Anderson is having a great vacation either hanging out at his firehouse or exploring a new not-too-sunny vacation spot. I'd like to think Ireland, lots of cool stuff in Ireland.
