KARL Marx as Father Christmas is one of the designs chosen by the Radical Tea Towel Company for their cards this year. And according to Yahoo Answers, the jury is out whether they are one and the same person. But it doesn’t stop there.

The Christmas card has found itself the subject of many political and industrial issues since the mid 19th century.
