Christmas Countdown ...15...Red & White

Christmas Colours? I always thought red and white were traditional colours of Christmas because theywere the colours associated with Santa Claus, but  the origin of Santa dressing in red costume comes from a marketing strategy rather than a tradition. It was adopted by Coca Cola when an artist depicted their soda brand with the colour red during winter season. This was in 1890. Previously, Santa was dressed in green ever since the Victorian era.
