Title

Santa Claus Views Fireside Scene through Keyhole

Description

The card's main scene is portrayed as if the viewer is looking through a keyhole. There, a family surrounds the golden light of a lit fireplace. Above the fireplace are stockings. In front of it, three males sit on the rug while one boy writes a letter. A woman with a toddler stands to the left, and the toddler is trying to throw a sheet of paper into the fire. Around the keyhole is an outdoor scene. Santa Claus stands at the chimney to the house with a decorated Christmas tree. On the right is seen his sleigh and reindeer. The greeting in the bottom right reads "Best Christmas Wishes".
