Have a Merry RED Christmas

There are many stories and theories as to why the colour red coded Christmas; from tales of Christ's blood, to limited colour pigments in Victorian times, to Christmas season holly berries. Apparently, the reason Santa wears red today derives from a 1930s Coca-Cola campaign that became monumentally popular! Whatever the case, red IS the colour of Christmas!
