Santa, Father Christmas (Xmas) - Coca-Cola Lies.

Recommended Posts

Coca-Cola lay claim that they invented the modern day image of Santa/Father Xmas in 1931, not true!, the first recorded image was published in 1896 by the short lived American magazine Puck who copied/modified the name of the British satirical publishment 'Punch'.

Ah well that's the Americans for you, single handedly won all the wars (at least Johh Wayne did), Invented apple pie (years after they invented the apple) and now they claim to have invented father Christmas.

 

Oh well happy hogswatch to all.
