Odd, Dark and Forgotten Christmas
Anthropomorphic edibles pictured on these postcards printed in the 18oo's were a favorite English fantasy associated with the eating and merriment of the season. These seem to sum up the season – the pot as fiery imp, Sir Loin getting knighted, and finally Santa served up as the main dish while elves dance round in glee.
