Santa Claus Ringing in Christmas

Title

Santa Claus Ringing in Christmas

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and shows Santa Claus ringing a large gold bell. The edges are trimmed in a gold, glittering border. The bell and Santa Claus are set apart from the rest of the card and can move, making them fragile. In the top left corner, the bell is seen hanging from a wooden post with evergreen branches on it. Santa Claus is below it on the center/right part of the postcard pulling on the bell with a rope. He wears a red robe and hood and has a long white beard with a golden rope sash and black boots. He stands on a snowy hill with the pink, blue, and purple colors of the sunset/sunrise reflected in the sky and the snow he stands on. On the top of the hill sits what is presumed to be a church covered in snow with two houses and trees near it. Under Santa Claus' left boot it reads "Joyeux Noel" in gold print.
