The Red Santa

help me out here... perhaps Coca-Cola didn’t start the current day Santa Claus…the rumour was, in the early 30′s the brand used the santa with the coca-cola colour red, thus the modern day Father Christmas was born…or was this one huge publicity stunt…

santa in red

this postcard on the net is dated 1908 but the car does look more 1920’s.  If indeed the postcard is genuine then it was pre Coca-cola involvement…

so when did he actually change from the green to red…
