DID YOU KNOW? When depictions of Father Christmas first began showing up in illustrations, he wore many different coloured robes: from green and purple to blue and brown. From the late 1800s, it became popular to depict Santa in a red suit. Artist Louis Prang portrayed him that way in a series of Christmas cards in 1885. The modern image of Santa Claus in a red suit was firmly established in 1931, when artist Haddon Sundblom illustrated him that way for a widely-circulated campaign for Coca-Cola.
