Title

Santa Claus Watches Christmas Party Through Keyhole

Description

The main scene of the card is printed as if to view through an old-fashioned keyhole. Inside the scene, a Christmas Party is taking place. A man holds a small child while a blond-haired woman places a red cone hat on its head. Another woman offers the child a Christmas favor. Two other women, one wearing a blue party hat, are pulling apart a firecracker. Behind them is a decorated three. Around the keyhole scene is evidence of Santa's visit. Santa Claus himself and two reindeer are shown on the left side of the card, along with a couple toys. The right side shows a chimney, tree, and other toys - a rifle, ark, and train. The bottom reads "Wishing You many Christmas Joys".
