Capture The Holiday Season With A Photo In A Classic Coca-Cola Santa Setting

Capture the holiday season and get a photo of you with friends and family in a Coca-Cola Santa classic painting by artist Haddon Sundblom or choose from a variety of photo options to commemorate your visit to the World of Coca-Cola.  This is a limited time opportunity until Jan. 5, 2011.

These holiday photos make great holiday greeting cards and gifts too. Haddon Sundblom was a Michigan-born illustrator that was commissioned in 1931 by The Coca-Cola Company to develop advertising images using Santa Claus. For inspiration, Sundblom turned to Clement Clarke Moore's 1822 poem "A Visit From St. Nicholas." Moore's description of the man as "chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf" led to an image of Santa that was warm and friendly. For the next 35 years, Sundblom painted portraits of Santa that helped to create the modern image of Santa – an interpretation that today lives on in the minds of children of all ages and all over the world.
