This charming old-fashioned postcard shows Santa Claus in front of the chimney and a roaring fire on Christmas Eve. The mantel is decorated with holly, a wreath, and stockings hung with care.
Two little children have fallen asleep next to the fireplace while reading, most probably, “The Night Before Christmas,” (as we all did) while trying to wait for the appearance of Santa. Santa is holding a doll for the little girl who sleeps with her brother and is bending to check on them.
This vintage Christmas postcard has captured the magic of Christmas Eve in beautiful colors.
