Father Christmas Checks Address

Title

Father Christmas Checks Address

Description

Rendered in a cartoon style, a plump Father Christmas in an orange coat stands before the door of a house. His black cap has an antler on the back and is tied around his head with a red kerchief. He has a bag of toys under his back, bundle of branches under his right arm, and carry-bag of toys in his right hand. At his feet is a small tree on a stand. In his left hand he holds a piece of paper and appears to be checking the house's address. In the background are more houses. Small letters underneath the tree appear to read "Morgen kommf der Wihnachtemann, / kennect mit seinen Gaben!" The greeting at the bottom is "Frohliche Weihnachten".
