Santa Claus Smoking by Chimney

Title

Santa Claus Smoking by Chimney

Description

Santa Claus is standing on a snowy rooftop by a chimney, his bag of toys at his feet. He is smoking a pipe. The full moon is rising in the background and there are holly decorations around the poem at the top. It reads: "The chimneys narrow tall thin and high / Really I do't quite see the reason why / Unless folks are anxious and not of yore / To have me come in by the big front door." "Merry Christmas" is printed in silver at the bottom.
