Father Christmas Blows His Horn

Title

Father Christmas Blows His Horn

Description

In the right half of the card the central figure is Father Christmas. He is dressed in a billow-sleeved, button-down shimmering green coat with polished black boots. He is wearing a bowler-style black hat with yellow band and a pom on top. In his left hand is a striped stick and toys. With his right he is blowing a golden horn that's attached to a red cord around his neck. Father Christmas is announcing his arrival - a boy child to his left is running off the house's porch to greet him. On the porch stands a woman in red holding a toddler. In the background is a snow-covered village with a church. The card's border is Christmas greenery. Across the bottom "Frohliche Weihnachten" is printed with a handwritten message added.
