Haddon Sundblom's first Coca-Cola Santa:


The face of Santa was based on Haddon's neighbor, retired salesman Lou Prentiss (1931). Haddon went on to create several more pieces of Santa artwork for Coca-Cola through 1964, adding his own facial features after the death of Mr. Prentiss.

Incidentally, for those of you that saw it before I changed it; I had the wrong "First Coca-Cola Santa" up. It's been corrected :)

True!


“The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post “Thou shalt not steal,” “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” and “Thou shalt not lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.”
