Description

Father Christmas is the central figure of the card; he is shown waist-up. He wears a hooded red robe and has a holly crown. In his arms he holds a golden plate or tray piled high with gifts. There are dolls, packages, drums, books, and apples on the platter. Behind him is a snowy field and lone house under a star-flecked sky. "A Merry Christmas" is printed at the bottom.
