Description

A blazing fire warms a Christmas scene of toys and a cat and kittens around a fireplace hung with stockings. A snow-covered countryside with carolers standing outside a house fills the rest of the image area. Mistletoe borders the card and encircles the central scene. The card is adorned with a white fringe. The inscription reads: "Wishing you a Merry Christmas. Joy, peace, health, and plenty. A Happy New Year."
