    I recently seen a 12 pack of Coca-Cola cans with the polar bears on the packaging of the carton. Is this for the holiday season? Is it going to replace Santa?

    In fact, here in Mexico, Coca-Cola made more emphasis on the Polar Bears than Santa since 2003 in the christmas packaging. See, in a set of 6 cans, only Santa appeared in two:



    And the christmas promotion was about tiny electronic Polar Bears where you could record a message.

    XLS_04, are these the 2005 holiday cans?

    I am a bit tired of the Santa cans myself. Something new.
    Now if Coke USA only came out with olympic cans like they did for the 06 winter games, I would be in collectors heaven.

    I like the Santa cans. They are a tradition and have been around as long as I can remember. I am only in college though, but I say keep the santa cans. I don't drink coke but I like the santa cans lol.

    Its normal that Coca-Cola uses Santa in their packaging every christmas, don't forget that Coca-Cola created the Santa Claus visual concept that is well-known today... and the christmas cans are like a memorial to Mr. Haddon Sundblom who created all that wonderful Santa Claus art.

    I believe the bears may be on the 2005 Christmas bottles, based on a small picture I saw in the BJ's Warehouse Club Christmas book.

    Where did you find these bottles? Are they the wrapped glass bottles?
