Title

Father Christmas and Praying Child

Description

The postcard's scene is set outdoors in a snow-covered wood. The trees in the background are red-tinted, while the ones closest to Father Christmas and the girl are snow-covered and decorated. Father Christmas, dressed in a long red coat with star patterns and hat with black trim, crouches in front of the evergreen, listening to the girl kneeling in front of him. She is golden-haired and dressed in green, with her hands folded in prayer. The upper right reads "Joyous Christmas".
