Nativity in Black and White

Title

Nativity in Black and White

Description

The card depicts, in black and white, a stable scene of Joseph and Mary gazing upon the newborn baby Jesus in a manger. Stylistically, it looks as if statues were photographed. The print beneath reads "Wie danken die, Herr Jesu Christ, / daB du ein Kind geworden bist, / und hergekommen uns zu gut, / uns mitgebracht dein himmlisch Gut. / Gesegnete Weihnacht / und alles Gut zum neuen Jahr!" The general meaning is a thank-you to Jesus for coming as a newborn, wishing the receiver a blessed Christmas and New Year.
