Why Santa wears red?

12 Dec

All of us know who is Santa Claus. He is old an old man with long white beard, and wears red coat and hat. He comes on Xmas Eve night and give children some gifts. I think no one cannot imagine him. But why he wears red coat? Why not pink? Why not yellow?

The image which we all have about Santa Claus was made by Haddon Sundblom, a Swedish-American painter who draw Santa Claus for Coca-Cola campaign. This Santa Claus had innocent young-looking-face, and it was liked by women very much. Then It became the symbol of “X’mas with family”.

So, the reason why Santa Claus wears red is because the image which was accepted by women was wearing red coat for Coca-Cola campaign.

What a coincidence!!unnamed
