Santaski

Yay! Vintage Russian Christmas Cards!



A publicity still from 'Dr Strangelove Versus Santa Claus', Glorious People's Film Collective, 1968.




Tired of his outdated flying carpet, Santa sees the future...




... but unfortunately it's an Aeroflot flight, and as such it falls out of the sky twenty minutes after takeoff.




Sadly, Jinglepixie didn't think to ask what had happened to Experimental Rockets 1 through 16.




Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer didn't think he could be replaced. But he was wrong. Dead wrong.




Soviet elves parachute into Washington DC in the first horrific stage of Operation Forced Festivity.




Only the luckiest children wake on Christmas morning to find a mining cart, a steel foundry and a hydroelectric power station under the tree.




Drag racing Russian satellites was a blast until the infamous Hubble Crash of 1999.




*bzzt*, giant pink space genitals, you are cleared for landing, over...


And so on.

I love these! I can't help but imagine that the paratrooper would rather be filling cavities, though.
