Amazing Holiday Advertising

I love to look at old advertising memorabilia. It is nostalgic to see how we were in the 1930s and 40s, and how we really haven't changed. Celebrity, glamor, and subliminal acceptance was as prevalent then as it is now. What caught my interest recently was the use of Santa Claus to sell tobacco products. It really is amazing that something we consider today as banned, restrictive, and/or unhealthy, used the symbol of a major holiday as it's shill.

Celebrities were in on the holiday promotion of cigarettes also

 It is so interesting that in a little over 50 years we have changed our focus to this.....

Another ban by the 'surgeon general' in 2018
