This is the kind of "there is no Santa Claus! He is not real! He's just from a Coca-Cola advert" thread that we traditionally have on this forum over the Christmas period.
Anyone reading it will probably be right into coming to the conclusion that Canada is now a nation of Christmas-hating, misery-guts Scrooges who probably get some kind of sick perverted pleasure in telling their children that Santa isn't real. You never see this on other nations' forums.
You are wise to pick Cuba over the Island of Hispaniola. The beaches are cleaner, the people friendlier - a more pleasant place all around.
Santa Claus is a Coke commercial icon representing mindless consumerism. Judging by the posts on this thread. Santa has you all brainwashed.... HAHAHAHA!!!
Images of Santa Claus were further popularized through Haddon Sundblom's depiction of him for The Coca-Cola Company's Christmas advertising in the 1930s. The popularity of the image spawned urban legends that Santa Claus was invented by The Coca-Cola Company or that Santa wears red and white because they are the colors used to promote the Coca-Cola brand. Historically, Coca-Cola was not the first soft drink company to utilize the modern image of Santa Claus in its advertising—White Rock Beverages had already used a red and white Santa to sell mineral water in 1915 and then in advertisements for its ginger ale in 1923. Earlier still, Santa Claus had appeared dressed in red and white and essentially in his current form on several covers of Puck magazine in the first few years of the 20th century.
