Boy Waves Hat at Father Christmas

Title

Boy Waves Hat at Father Christmas

Description

Father Christmas is wearing a long hooded red robe and carrying a walking stick in his right hand. On his back he carries a blue bag and a basket filled with toys. Behind him, there is a brick wall over which four children watch him. The furthest left is a blonde, then a another blonde, then a larger brunette boy waving his cap, and finally a blonde girl dressed in blue. "A Merry Xmas" is printed on the green gate to the left of the card; a bird perches on top. The background is a field of snow with bare trees, and in the distance there's a house. In the bottom left of the card there is a sprig of holly.
