Classic Coca Cola Santa Ad - Circa 1950's. Each time I see a Coke Santa... I'm immediately taken back to Christmas seasons of long ago. These are a real nostalgia trigger for me and has lead to a lifetime fascination with "Santa" items. I'll play Santa at a drop of a hat and love doing it.
On December 28, 1959, this Coca-Cola Santa print ad appeared in Life Magazine. It features Santa Claus at the refrigerator being watched as he opens a bottle of Coke. This ad also appeared in The Saturday Evening Post, Boys' Life, National Geographic, Time, Sports Illustrated and Good Housekeeping, among others.
