Couple Kissing on Halloween

Title

Couple Kissing on Halloween

Description

This card is very busy. In the center, a woman in a long yellow dress and a man in a black suit are passionately kissing. They stand on a red rug, and behind them is a tall red Grandfather clock striking midnight. A poem to their left reads, "When it's twelve / by the clock, / Put your latch-key / in the lock. / Take the sweetest / girl you know / Say 'good-night' and / home you go." At the top of the card is a border made of candles, a black cat, owl and moon, and bat. At the bottom is a smoking jack-o-lantern, ear of corn, squash, and pumpkin. Above it is the greeting "A Jolly Halloween."
