The Santa myth originated primarily with Bishop Nicholas Saint Nicholas , who was worshipped as a gift-bearer. The religious context, however, had become less and less important by the mid 19 th century.
Instead of episcopal robes, Santa now wore a Santa suit and fur-trimmed hat and was portrayed with a beard and cap, though deviating considerably from his now familiar sight — for example, he used to be suited up in green or blue as well as red. A persistent myth says that Santa Claus was the invention of an American soft-drink producer. Even if this account is not correct, it has nevertheless lastingly influenced our present-day image of Santa: For, to promote his product in , the beverage manufacturer commissioned the graphic designer Haddon Sundblom to draw Santa Claus in red and white — the colours of Coca-Cola.
Nowadays, hardly anyone can imagine Santa Claus in other colours.
