Santa delusions shattered…

We were pretty freaked out to discover that the popular image of Santa Claus – red coat, white beard, fat old man – was largely the invention of Coca-Cola. Apparently, modern images of Santa have been hugely influenced by Coca-Cola advertising campaigns, dating from the 1930s. Don’t believe it? We couldn’t either, so we Googled it and found that the rumours were in fact TRUE! We’re now completely disgusted by how much horrible multi-national companies have altered our lives. Ugh.
