"A Merry Christmas" Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and shows a nighttime winter scene on a snow covered rooftop. Santa Claus is seen wearing a red robe, tan gloves, black pants, and brown boots as he climbs into a snow covered brick chimney. Over his right shoulder is a brown bag full of toys. Below him on the rooftop are his reindeer, tied to his sleigh carrying toys. In the background is a lit Christian church with a starry sky and a crescent moon illuminating the night. At the top of the card in gold swirling script it reads, "A Merry Christmas."
