Flying Saucer Santa

I think the one image that epitomizes Christmas more then any other I have run across is this one from the Shell Fertilizer 1958 calendar. Santa Claus, Mr High Nutrient fertilizer and the NH3 guy traveling the night skies in their flying saucer. Oh what joy they will bring to the soy bean crop around the world.

I especially like the red stitching around the saucer, just like on a fertilizer bag. The NH3 guy is an anthropomorphized cylinder of ammonia. The pilot is a burlap sack with a human head. Amazing.
