Child Accidentally Points Gun at Father Christmas

Title

Child Accidentally Points Gun at Father Christmas

Description

The card is rendered in a realistic black-and-white style. Father Christmas sits on an ornamental rug with two white-garbed children. The boy, on the left, is reaching into Father Christmas' bag for a toy. The girl on the right is standing, holding a miniature gun pointed at Father Christmas. Father Christmas lifts the barrel to point upwards with his hand. Behind them is a garland-decked fireplace with two vases, a clock and a wreath on top, and a lavishly decorated tree to the right. The description reads "Hands Up".
