Title

"Merry Christmas" Santa Claus Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented horizontally and has a thin white border around all sides. The majority of the background is a light gray with white flecks, imitating snowflakes. In the upper left corner the word "Merry" is seen in gold script with what looks like a white dusting of snow atop the letters. In the bottom left corner the word "Christmas" is seen in similar gold script covered in white snow. Between these words is a framed scene. A blue frame shows a living room scene with four people sitting around a table in the center of the frame. Atop the table sits a lamp with a green shade and darker green/teal base. The four people are spread around the table doing activities like reading, knitting, and thinking. The carpet is a bright floral mixture and the walls are red and yellow with a fire raging. On the left side, a tan couch sits against the wall, a framed picture hangs from the wall, and a potted plant stands next to the couch. On the right side of the card stands Santa Claus. he leans over the right side of the frame. He wears a red cap and has long, blowing white hair and a beard. He smiles with red lips and white teeth and looks toward the left side of the postcard. His right arm is resting on the corner of the blue frame and holds the top of a large green bag full of toys. He wears a red coat with rolled cuffs and in his left hand he holds a large silver key. He wears black boots and brown pants and brown mittens. Sticking out of the green bag, a small American flag is seen.
