Happy Holidays!

Well, it’s been a nice break. Hope you all had a nice holiday, and are looking forward to a nice new year.

The stress of Christmas has come and gone this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look back and remember…here are some fun old vintage Christmas ads…

Two ways to say “Merry Christmas”: “Cancer” and “Emphysema”.

And “wow that’s a giant carton of cigs.”

Victorian Cards

I can’t really read this one very well, but I share it here because I love the image of Victorians selling all their cards attached to babies. You wanted a friendly greeting? Well now you get a BABY AS WELL. Nah but I’m pretty sure those Victorians liked babies or something. They all kind of look like aliens though.

Get Shown up by Santa!

I don’t know, I don’t think I’d buy a Zippo based on this ad. Seems like Zippo owners are jerks. I mean, here’s this guy having a little trouble with his lighter, and bam. Santa’s gotta come down and steal all his thunder with his fancy shmancy Zippo thing. Weak, Claus. Weak.

Ah, vintage ads. No matter how jaded and angry at the modern consumer-driven Christmas we become, we can at least know that it’s been going on for a long, long time.

Happy Holidays.
