  • I haven't heard that but ultimately it is up to us, consumers to buy it or not. I prefer my Santa Red.

  • The original history of Santa extends all the way back to the 4th century; however in many different places he has been called and looked very different depending on local customs etc. As far as green:

    "Pre-modern representations of the gift-giver from church history and folklore, notably St Nicholas and Sinterklaas, merged with the British character Father Christmas to create the character known to Britons and Americans as Santa Claus. Father Christmas dates back at least as far as the 17th century in Britain, and pictures of him survive from that era, portraying him as a jolly well-nourished bearded man dressed in a long, green, fur-lined robe."

    The current Red & White depection is courtesy of Ad men working for Coca-Cola in the early part of the 19thC.
