This picture of Batman, Robin, and Santa Claus was originally published as the cover of Batman #27, cover-dated February-March 1945. (Comics are dated several months in advance, so this would have been available on news stands in November and December 1944.) This was, incidentally, the first Christmas-themed cover ever to appear on an issue of Batman. Issue #15 featured a Christmas story (which you can read about at Comics Alliance), but the cover showed, bizarrely enough, Batman firing a machine gun. Hey, it was wartime, what are you gonna do.
