Looking through Google for suitable spacey images I came across this rather unsuitable old Soviet one.

It appals to me because it unintentionally shows how united the world is. The modern Santa Claus outfit was invented by Coca-Cola's advertising agency which is why it is in the company colours. The Soviet Santa is not quite the western one but is clearly influenced by that capitalist invention.

The rocket in the background is, like those in Tin Tin & most cartoon western ones, a V2 with added windows.

Have a Merry Christmas
