He's usually seen squeeky clean and fit for a family audience but back in the day, Santa Claus loved having a good smoke and grabbing a piece of tail.

He'll be coughing before he even reaches your chimney.

"He'll purr like a kitten..."
Santa's looking a little sinister in this undated ad for Turkish brand Murad Tobacco.
|Edgeworth Tobacco, 1935|
A "right fine" Mrs Claus is on the mind in this ad for Edgeworth.
"Prince Albert"... before it meant that other thing.
|Pall Mall, 1950.|

|Mojud Stockings, 1951.|
