I'm pretty sure that Coca-Cola didn't make him up, they just made him who he is today by changing his suit from black to red i believe.

He's cooler than you, and that's all that matters.

EDIT: All TRUE METAL FANS believe in Santa, he is BR00TALZ!!!

The Santa Claus we know.. depicted as a plump, jolly, white-bearded man wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, red pants, and black leather belt and boots...was brought into American culture in the 19th century, and most credit for this goes to a political cartoonist named Thomas Nast. Not coca-cola.

According to google, it wasn't Coca Cola that made him red, just popularised that image.

This advert pre-dates coke-

this man knows whats up

thomas nast created the image of santa claus that we know today and help in his popularization. He's also the man responsible for the donkey and elephant as representations for the democratic and republican parties in the US

It's pretty cool that in places like Germany and Austria they say that the baby Jesus brings the presents and not Saint Nicholas. But they have a holiday on the 6th of December where Saint Nicholas brings presents.
#26
yeah I'm pretty sure in germany they have Sankt Nikolaus Tag in the the 6th and he puts stuff in your shoes..I never heard anything about baby jesus tho lol...I have many doubts about that being true

but they do have santa claus's evil twin Krampus that is like a gremlin elf that beats bad kids with sticks and stuff

I used to work in a german part of Switzerland (Zurich) and that is where I heard the baby Jesus thing (Christkind).

Coca-Cola never created him, decades/centuries ago in Norwegia or somewhere in Europe (Germany? ^) there was St Nick. Coke were responsible for heavy propotion of Santa though.

Santa is an anagram of Satan. He's just an idea made up so parents aren't blamed for not getting kids their presents because they can't afford them.
