Last week for Sunday Snap we paid a visit to a Roman Catholic cathedral with the nickname 'Paddy's Wigwam'. I asked which city it was in and the answer is
With it being the last Sunday Snap before Christmas I thought I would go seasonal with this week's photo. Last week the Coca Cola truck visited Sheffield so we nipped in to pay it a visit. I have to say it's a lot more magical on the adverts! Although Coca Cola is about American as you can get we were all terribly British and formed a neat queue in order to get a free mixer size can of Coke. There was a much longer queue which we didn't know what it was for but we joined it anyway and I went off to investigate what it was for. It seems everybody was waiting for their turn to have their photo taken next to the truck which had a signpost with 'Sheffield' pointing to the truck. Since we're not fans of such photographic portraiture we then ducked out of the queue and looked around the rest of the Christmas lights in the city centre.
It is the Coca Cola adverts that are often credited with Santa wearing a red outfit rather than a green one. It's probably fairer to say that it was those adverts from the 1930s that popularised the red costume rather than creating it. In the 19th century the tale of Sinterklass was taken to America by Dutch emigrants. Based on the legend of St. Nicholas, Sinterklass was usually depicted in red bishop's vestments. However over the years Santa Claus, Father Christmas and all the other names he has gone through has been shown wearing a number of different coloured outfits. This week question is
In what year was the Coca Cola advert which first featured a Santa in a red costume?
We were joined last week by Susan and her own little doll playing mum to her baby. Jack and Noah have paid a visit to the cow shed. If you're going to be photo-bombed at this time of year it may be by Santa as Cheryl's son found out. For Kelly it was a case of eye, eye I see you. A trip to the garden centre for Snoskred saw some expensive plants but some bargain buys. Finally, it has been just the weather for jumping in muddy puddles especially so for Kara and her troop who got to meet a rather large version of Peppa and George Pig.
