Seeing Red   Conspiracy theorists claim that Santa's iconic crimson and white ensemble actually originated with a marketing scheme by Coca-Cola in the 1930s, when the company featured a jolly, red-suited Santa Claus in its ads to boost sales during cold winter months. While a similarly outfitted Santa appeared years earlier in newspapers like The Saturday Evening Post, many agree that Coca-Cola may have had a hand in creating the Santa we know today.
