Best Answer

The original colour of Santa - AKA Saint Nicholas (Santa was his nickname) was green. He was a Bishop, and green was the colour of his Bishop robes.

He became famous because he was known to leave gifts and food for poor families and orphaned children on Christmas, hence where we get our stories of Santa Claus from.

Coca-Cola changed his colour from green to red during their adverts on TV, because green represented their rival company, 7-Up.

No they didn’t. Santa was changed to red by an artist. The same artist also did Santa in green. Coca Cola played no part in making Santa red.
