Three large (10 ½” x 6 ¾”) are shown. On two of the cards there are smiling elves. On the center card is a picture of Santa Claus. The three cards are squared up and placed in an envelope. One elf is removed and shown on both sides, then set aside. The second elf is removed and shown on both sides as well. After suitable byplay a third card is removed from the envelope. On one side is screened: MERRY CHRISTMAS. And when you turn it around it reads (surprise!) HO HO HO. The envelope is now shown to be completely empty. Great entertainment for the Christmas season show!
