Merry Christmas, Illustrated London News, 25 December 1847

description

Summary

'Merry Christmas!' The full-page illustration is accompanied by two verses, the first being:
Old Christmas is come for to keep open house
And scorns to be guilty of starving a mouse:
Then come, boys, and welcome, for diet the chief,
There's plum-pudding, roast goose, minced pies, and roast beef,
Then let us be merry, and taste the good cheer,
And remember Old Christmas but comes once a year".
