Father Christmas, Santa Claus & Coca Cola again

Some of you may have read me little rant about the awful Coke adverts on TV at Christmas (this year's rather sozzled red faced Santa, smiling drunkenly at people as the pass is a new low). However, not everyone has read it.

So when I received an e-mail today from the Council making some reference to branding and putting on the e-mail "Most people do not know that Coca-Cola created the Red suited Santa Claus in 1931", I was annoyed (I know, I'm pathetic).

So, for all those that don't know it already, Coca-cola did NOT create the red coated Santa. Follow THIS LINK to read the full facts.
