#Favourite Fact

#Favourite Fact .Santa clause was thought to be a priest (Nicolas) who came from Turkey and gave money to poor ladies who had no dowry . I found out about this when I visited Turkey for a holiday .The original Santa was like a green man found in English folklore and it was Coca Cola who dressed him in the costume you see him in today. This was for marketing purposes. Reply

Up until the coke adverts started, st Nicolas / Santa Claus was depicted in gold or cream clothing. In a lot of European countries, you can still buy statuettes of him still attired that way. Coke did hijack him for advertising purposes, and since then he has been attired in red, but that depiction is historically incorrect. Reply

Wow. I was so sure you must be wrong that I just googled it. Sure enough Santa as we know him, and Coke emerged certainly in the same decade.
I’ve seen pictures of Saint Nicholas in black, and later Green, but really would never have thought he was connected to Coke, other than the “Christmas is coming “ lorry.
