It’s true. The Santa Claus that we know today, has only been around for a very short time. Santa used to look more elf-like, and he didn’t wear red. Santa always wore blue. He was a Santa Claus with a blue outfit, how crazy is that?
He was blue until one company changed the world… And the color of the suit. In 1931, an ad featured Santa Claus in a red suit… To match their red logo… That company was Coca-Cola.
They featured a more jolly, plump Santa, and have been running Christmas ads ever since with the famous St. Nick…
The red suit caught on, and he’s been red ever since.
So what happened to Blue Christmas?
It’s still here, but blue has transformed to signify something else; the blue line… Meaning, police and law enforcement now wear the lovely blue Santa suit. It makes sense.
But how weird would it be to have blue Santa’s everywhere? It totally blows my mind.
