Tenuous Link?

Photobucket
More Christmas preparations leave me little time this evening. Still only one more day of work which is something to look forward to!

I've had this image for some time and despite calls from the family to post it I've resisted. Why? Well it seemed a little cliché, the Coca Cola tin and the selective colouring. That's not to say that personally I didn't like it though and with nothing festive to post today I thought just maybe......

We have to remember that the familiar image of Santa in his red suit with white trimmings was in fact a creation of the Coca Cola company! So there you have it a very tenuous link to Christmas. I'll try harder tomorrow, maybe ;O)

Close enough for me I have a bunch of coca cola ornaments on our tree, and a whole swag of coca cola collectibles cars liliput lane houses etc set up as a little village
