Things go better with Santa

Recognize this jolly gent?

If so, you can thank (in part) the Coca-Cola company, whose 1930s holiday ads illustrated by Haddon Sundblom helped popularize the image of Santa as a rotund, ruddy elf dressed in red from head to toe.

Thanks for your visits in 2010. The deconstructing will continue in 2011. Happy New Year!
