As early as the 1880’s, Artist Thomas Nast depicted Santa wearing the red suit that we all recognise today, although many people believe that it was the famous Coca-Cola adverts in the 1930’s that did away with Santa’s Green coat.

It’s made of cardboard and paper but is designed to look like stained glass once lit up.
