Father Christmas Watches Children Play

Description

Father Christmas, dressed in a long red robe with a satchel and tree over his shoulder, is standing in a snowy wood. In the background is a church and the trees; near the front of the card is a snowy log with three robins. Father Christmas is watching an inset scene located to the right of the card; in it, a girl and a boy are playing. The boy, in blue, plays a trumpet with a toy horse to the right. A girl in yellow with a white apron sits on a bench playing with a doll. The greeting is printed in the upper right "A merry Christmas."
