Here Is What Holiday Ads In The 1950's Looked Like, They Are Utterly Insane

A time when smoking was actually cool and drinking was sociably acceptable.

Mad Men has taught us that the 50's were a magical time of manliness, smoking anywhere you please, and alcoholism. Some may say that modern media has glorified the 50s, that it wasn't such an epic time of pleasure and coolness. Well, taking a look at these old school Xmas ads proves otherwise.

Christmas seemed so much more whimsical and festive back then, probably because everyone was hammered. Glimpse into the magnificent time that was the holidays in the 1950s, where everyone looked good, smoked guilt-free, and alcohol was the gift of choice.
