Santa Protects Russia in 1945

I could wait another 11 months for the Christmas season to roll around again and post this, or just admit that I came upon this series of cards a little late.

Here were have the politicization of Yuletide’s beloved figurehead. Santa is rarely pictured with a machine gun nowadays. I love these ephemeral renditions of an otherwise unchanging legend.

Of course, we also have the delightfully retro-futuristic Russian Space Santa.
