Description

Father Christmas is dressed in a long brownish-red coat and hat and is laden with toys. He has a basket on his back full of colorful items including a toy soldier. In his left hand he holds a green bag of toys with a doll visible, and on his right side he carries a satchel with toys. His right hand is extended and rests on the head of the young girl kneeling in front of him. She has shoulder-length blond hair, is wearing a pink gown and black shoes, and has her hands clasped in prayer. In the background is a decorated tree. "A Merry Christmas" is across the bottom of the card.
