Santa Claus in Sleigh and Child Gets Gift

Title

Santa Claus in Sleigh and Child Gets Gift

Description

This card is very busy; firstly, it has a border of holly and bells around the upper 2/3 of the card. The bottom third is a poem, which is bordered by two Santas and bells on the bottom. It reads "And away the deers flew / like the down of a thistle / But St. Nick exclaimed ere / he drove out of sight / Happy Christmas to all and / to all a good night." Above that is a boy in white holding a joker doll; the background behind him is a decorated Christmas tree. Finally, above him in the upper 1/3 of the card, Santa Claus rides by houses over the snowy ground in a sleigh pulled by three reindeer.
