The Chimney Sweep's Christmas

The Chimney Sweep's Christmas

Christmas story on six postcards after a poem by Marcel Houjan. In a cruel version of a modern Christmas story, a grimy young chimney sweep puts his clogs by the fireplace and sleeps, dreaming that the hearth will be filled with toys. When he awakes, however, the clogs are empty.
