    Iconic Christmas Commercials

    What a wonderful site! I'm brand new here , and if I can't get an answer here, then it won't be anywhere.

    I'm trying to put together a quiz or activity for a Christmas luncheon. We've had word searches, scrambled carols and trivia. Most of the members of this group are 75 and older, and I thought it would be fun to put together some Christmas advertising symbols and iconic ads to identify. I can only come up with a few and they are relatively recent, like the Coca Cola polar bears and Hess trucks. I vaguely recall a Coca Cola Santa and some of the old department stores had their Christmas "characters" (which I can't remember). I am at a complete loss. Does anyone have a better memory than mine? Thanks.

    Hi Ginny and welcome to the forums!

    The Coca-Cola Santa has been around for over 75 years!

    In fact, it has been said that he is the reason Santa looks the way he does here in the USA. Read more about him here on Coke's site:

    As for other iconic Christmas ads, let me get back to you...

    Hi Welcome!

    Well the only ones I can think of are:

    Coca Cola Santa and the Polar Bears
    Coca Cola trucks

    Macy*s Parade?

    What was that Santa that rode in the razor? I think it was Norelco?

    I love the coca-cola song christmas commercial where they all have candles & are in the shape of a tree.. I believe it's from the 70's.
    Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. Merry Christmas from my home to yours.
