And for me, in particular, no Christmas season would feel finished without one of Coca-Cola's Christmas commercials capturing the picture of Santa Claus coming down the chimney in finding an icy cold Coke looking forward to him. The cementing of the image of the round faced, rosy cheeked Santa into our culture is even
attributed to Coke from their pre-tv print advertising campaigns. Then several years ago, the Coca-Cola Polar Bear Christmas commercials made their debut. Once again taking pictures family life at the holidays, but this time
in the animal world with the cherished desktop generated Coke Polar Bears. They rejoice their Coca-Cola Christmas bringing home a tree to their cave and sliding across the ice. They even borrow a bright winter night crescent moon to open their bottle of Coke. I for my part love the only where the penguins are having their holiday party, consuming Coke for sure, and boogieing the night away to "Little St. Nick" when the little polar bear cub comes sliding down the hill into the middle of their party. Of course, the baby penguin offers him a Coke and the friendship among all of them begins as we see them start to dance the night away. That is the that means of the holidays in any case isn't it, coming together in Peace and Joy?When I hear a jingle on TV that catches my ear, it plays through my head across the day and often even longer. I've even found myself buzzing the Coca-Cola Christmas advertisement jingles out loud only to hear others around me join in or simply appear to smile in awareness.
