Were wondering why Santa Claus in red?
Were wondering why Santa Claus looks like this: a red suit, white fringe of fur and gray beard? The idea manifested itself gradually in different artists and in the end turned out to be a collective image. The first drawing of a complete old man with gifts appeared thanks to Thomas Nast in 1863. After almost 40 years, Santa appeared in familiar colors on the cover of the comic magazine “Puck”. In 1931, Coca-Cola launched an advertising campaign with a more modern look of Santa, which was developed by Haddon Sandblom. His images were the most successful of those that were previously presented by many artists. It is Haddon who is credited with creating the image of the charming Santa Claus, recognizable and very popular throughout the world.
