Christmas with the Coca-Cola Company
Coca-Cola is known for creating some of the most treasured and iconic holiday season collectibles and for creating many traditions for every time of year for friends and families everywhere.
There had been attempts to create the perfect Santa Claus to be the face of the Christmas season for Coca-Cola for a few years before an artist named Haddon Sundblom came onto the scene in 1931. That was when he created the modern Santa that we all know and love today. This jolly character was first featured in Coca-Cola’s advertisement “Thirst Knows No Season” in the Saturday Evening Post.
The same design was used and revamped over the course of 33 years, from 1931 to 1964, as the face of Coca-Cola. Over this period of time Sundblom integrated his Santa into seasonal ads as well as representing the character during significant time periods and events such as, Supporting Our Troops with military based advertising, or Santa sitting on a tropical island in the summertime.
There is also another character that came into play for the holiday season and that was the famous, and lovable, Coca-Cola Polar Bear. The first print ad that featured the Polar Bear was in France in 1922. The Polar Bear ad was used sporadically over the course of the next 70 years. Then in 1993, a new face was given to the adorable animals. These icons made their television debut as part of the global campaign titled “Always Cool, Always Coca-Cola.”
