Title

Father Christmas Guides Children

Description

Father Christmas stands in a long, rich red robe with a brown cap, bag over his right shoulder, and walking stick in his left hand. Two children stand directly beneath his arm, gazing upwards either at the snow, stars, or something not printed on the card. The taller boy is dressed in brown boots, green pants, a brown coat and blue hat. The girl is dressed in a yellow bonnet, purple coat and blue dress. At their feet is a holly decoration. Behind them, Father Christmas has a tree on a wooden sled. There are evergreens in the background, stars in the sky, and snow coming down on the figures. "A Merry Christmas" is printed in red below their feet to the left of the card.
