Since the "Countdown to Christmas has started" (9 days and counting) I thought I would revive this thread I posted in 2012. Not all the images are still avail. after 4 years. But, I'm hoping that the Membership will dig out their Petro related Christmas items and share....

Since I posted; I have added a few Christmas items:

Osceola Refining display ad & match cover from a Phillips 66 distributor. The tanker pictures aren't following the thread but are just too nice not to include.

I will start out with a few non-Mobil items from my collection that are Christmas related.
Here we have a Hi-Speed calendar from the late 30's, a Shell handy oiler gift box, and a Raybestos blotter with Santa.

OK, now on to my Socony-Vacuum and Mobil Christmas items. I collected vintage Christmas long before I collected Mobil, so whenever I see a older Mobil Christmas item I have to have it!
We'll start out with a modern ornament given out by Mobil in 1992. The box of ornaments are from the 1950's.

The issue of Socony-Vacuum News is from December of 1936. The poster is from the early 1960's and is large, at 34 by 47 inches. I have a copy of a period photo of one of these posters in a station's window. The Tavern brand candles are a popular collectible with Christmas collectors. I only have a couple examples, mostly to display the boxes.

OK...now on to some calendars. General Petroleum released some neat ones back in the mid to late 30's. Great artwork in my opinion.
First up is a 1936, followed by a 1937, both given out in the General territory. The third calendar is a Mobilheat from 1958.

This was a cool Ebay find this summer....the December of 1945 Socony-Vacuum sales bulletin that came with the window display for Christmas. It's special to me to think it is from the first Christmas America celebrated after the end of WW2. I'm sure it was a very special Christmas to a lot of Americans that year. To give an idea of size, the strips are 10" by 32" wide.

Now on to postcards.....in the first photo the top 2 are from the General Petroleum territory, and as usual have neat artwork. From top to bottom they are dated 1935, 1936, and 1937. The bottom 2 postcards are bit larger in size. The top one is my favorite Mobil Christmas item in my collection. Cool artwork with the Pegasus reindeer!!

I think this is all for now....I'll have to take a look and see if I have more items in my paper boxes. Last we have folded cards from the 1950's.
Have a good Christmas everyone,

Do you think the companies had PR people/secretarial staff answer the children's letters? Anyone on this list post a Santa letter?

I figured I would bring this timely thread up again and add the few new Christmas items I added to my collection over the last year and see if anyone else dug up any items they might want to add.
The card is from 1940. I researched the gentleman's names at the top of the card and learned they opened the Socony-Vacuum office in Des Moines, IA in June of 1937.
The 2 Mobil ornaments come from the Beaumont Refinery in Texas and are dated 1998 and 1999. It's neat to see the use of the magnolia flowers on the '99 in homage to the Magnolia Petroleum Co.
That's all I added this year...anyone else?
