Title

Father Christmas and Children Around a Tree, With a Poem

Description

The main scene of the card depicts Father Christmas in a white robe and red hat standing to the right of a Christmas tree. Four children, a boy and an older girl holding two younger girls' hands, stand in front of it. The card is bordered in evergreen and pine cones. The poem at the bottom reads: "God Jul / Jeg synger Julekvad, / Jeg er saa glad saa glad! / Min hjertens Jesus hviler / I stald og krybbe trang, / Som sol kin klare smiler / Ha paa sin Modera fang, / Han er Frelaer min." Roughly translated from Danish, this is a poem about singing in the Christmas spirit and being happy because Jesus has come as brother and savior.
