The Coca-Cola Santa

THE COCA-COLA SANTA
In case you haven’t guessed I have many favorite things about the Christmas season, but one of my absolute favorite things about the holiday season is when I go to the grocery store and see the Coco-Cola Santa on a coke bottle for the very first time at the start of the season each year. An interesting fact for all of those who believe in Santa Clause and the spirit of the season: according to a book I once read, The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn, it is believed that the Coca-Cola company is the only company thus far that Santa Clause has agreed to model for and collaborate with. Sundblom is that artist who crated the timeless Santa Clause advertisements for Coca-Cola. Over the many years Sundblom’s Coca-Cola Santa has become so well-know and loved, that some of the Coca-Cola Santa paintings have been on exhibit in such locations as the Louvre, the Museum of Science and Industry, The Royal Ontario Museum, NK Department Store, and at the World of Coca-Cola. Below are some of my favorite Coca-Cola holiday advertisements.

  1. I love seeing Santa on Coke bottles. But my favorite is the little tiny bottles that they only sell this time of year, I think they are just so cute, and I wish they would sell them year round.

    1. I love the Santa Coke bottles, they have the best Christmas ads! If you're talking about the little 8oz glass bottles, those are sold year round, they are more noticeable at Christmas time though.
