Young Father Christmas by Woods

Title

Young Father Christmas by Woods

Description

Father Christmas is pictured in a long brown hooded robe and bushy white beard, although his build and face seem younger than generally depicted. He is holding a small evergreen tree. By his feet is a wooden cross, and a little further away a basket of toys and ax. Behind him is a snow-covered open space bordered by evergreen woods. The greeting in the open space reads "My Thoughts I employ / For the good girl and boy."
