Father Christmas with a cup of Wassail


Here is an image of Father Christmas raising a cup of Wassail with Twelfth Cake, Plum Pudding, Roast Beef, and Hot Elder Wine arrayed before him. Behind him are bogies, spirits, a snap dragon, and a couple under the mistletoe.  Albeit odd but certainly interesting!
