A satirical, artist made Christmas card that likely plays on the anxiety of the season. On the far right stands a dead Christmas tree with presents forgotten beneath its branches. An executioner pushes a lever at the center, forcing his victim beneath the surface of a tub as he says, "Submarine going down." On the left, two men are forcing an iron maiden closed on a woman while saying "Anything to tell us?"

At the upper right, the reads "God rest ye merry gentlemen. Let nothing you deter."Signed "Warrington & Frances" in pencil, lower left. Title stamped in red ink, lower right.
