Since there is less than 2 weeks until Christmas...

I have a habit of pulling out some of my "Christmas Give-aways" and Christmas Cards from the different Oil Company’s... I have collected...

I hope others who collect these items will also show some images...


Cards from Cities Service, ESSO and Texaco:



Image from Ebay of Sinclair Christmas Card:





A few Flying A items in my Collection:











And lastly, this generic Christmas Card I picked up on Ebay:

Glad you started this thread Bob, I was thinking about starting one the other day as I have added a couple new gas related Christmas items in the last year. I will get the pics tonight to add to the post. We did a post like this last year that I really enjoyed, and with new members every year there will always be new people interested in seeing them and maybe adding to the post!

Here's a unique 1960's Chevrolet X-Mas collectible I found in the box in their P&A Dept.
Made out of molded plastic in vibrant colors with a plastic psychadelic colored disc behind that circulates,like a spinner clock.
It measures 18" X 22" and is 5" deep & takes a D battery.

Bob and Dave

Those Santa's are from a time when advertisers used good figure artists. Very nice.

And Rick, have you ever plugged it in and saw it run?

Loyd, after reading the name in the card. I wonder if this person was possibly a relative of yours?
