~ True history of Santa Claus: A Corporate Marketing gimmick in 1920s

In western civilization Religion/Faith/Festivals are inflitrated by Corporate Marketing/Consumerization propaganda,  removing Spiritual sacredness!

During 1920-30s Economic Crisis in west, fat model with red dress selling Cold drink was released on Christmas winter to woo customers, it got  popular so trend is continued next year which ultimately became Santa Claus figure giving gifts to kids.

So, today’s fat-red Santa Claus was started as a marketing model to sell chilled soft drinks in winter cold where sales are naturally down!! Then attached to some ancient European Saint story giving gift to kids!(?)

Same way western greeting card industry discovered and exploited Friendship Day, Mothers Day, Valentine’s day, Anniversary, etc to fool people and sale their cards!

Only stupid ignorant Indians fall in their trap!

    • This educational Post is about history of painting of a popular figure…not against personal beliefs…Spiritual sacredness about every faith/culture must be respected….

      Unfortunately many Indians are unaware of western culture….they only waste time clicking Photo/Selfie at famous monument/landscape without studying local culture/beliefs…

      Company documentary itself showed how they came up with this painting…They even have museum to showcase life of painter and how advertise each year changed since 1920s. Plz look official post link below video at youtube subscription.

      Wish you n family very Happy New Year 🙂
