Haddon Sundblom for a Coca-Cola holiday ad campaign. His
Santa has become one of the most beloved cultural icons and
an anticipated part of the Christmas holiday tradition.

Sparkling bubbles

Family Circle, 1962: Colgate’s Soaky Santa bath suds was a popular stocking stuffer.

 

Family Circle began publication in 1932. It was initially distributed
for free at Piggly Wiggly supermarkets, until it was offered as a
freestanding  publication in 1946.

 

In October 2019, Meredith Corporation announced that Family Circle would
cease publishing after its December 2019 issue.
