Old Father Christmas with the Yule Log
Christmas with the Yule Log. "What, Father Christmas! Here again? With yule log on your back, and mighty store of racy things well stuffed within your pack. Hail, cheerer! Blessed be your face, great king of frost and cold! For, notwithstanding all your beard, you're only twelve months old." The folkloric figure of old Father Christmas with wassail bowl, staff, yule log and a wreath of holly about his head.
