Title

Woman Hugs Father Christmas

Description

The card depicts Father Christmas in a long brown coat and hat, holding a toy soldier in one hand and with packages and a bundle of branches at his belt. A woman in a light blue dress, brown fur cape and elaborate hat caresses his face with both hands. There is a lighted and decorated Christmas tree in the lower left. At the bottom is a handwritten "Maria" and the greeting "God Jul tillonskas af." In English, this is roughly 'wishing you Merry Christmas."
