From 1948, some great acting right there, especially from the last kid who gets a present.

I like the way this is animated and how it retains the spirit of Haddom Sundblom’s original posters from all those years ago.

As Christmas 2009 comes to an end I thought that I would post some Christmas covers of the Saturday Evening Post, featuring the iconic depictions of Santa Claus by Norman Rockwell. I believe that most of the come from the 1920s.
There is a myth that Coca Cola and Haddom Sundblom created the moderb image of Father Christmas, but as can be seen here, Rockwell was portraying him in the way we now know a decade before Coke did.

Perhaps the most iconic advertising campaign of all would be Coca Cola’s use of Santa Claus to advertise their product. In December every year for three decades Artist Haddom Sundblom would paint Santa Claus taking time out from his busy Christmas Eve schedule to down an ice cold Coke.

With Christmas fast approaching and Kraft making a hostile bid to take over the iconic British chocolate brand Cadbury, I thought it would be interesting to look at how Cadbury used another icon, Santa Claus, to advertise their chocolate brand in the 1920s.
I believe this is from a decade or so before Coca Cola and Haddom Sundblom used Santa to advertise the ‘pause that refreshes’. Note how Santa’s sack has a Union Jack emblazed on it, to emphasise the British-ness of the product.
