This year I went to the store to buy my Coke products only to find that Santa is absent this year from the holiday packaging. I try not to be consumeristic but this one really bummed me out. So much so that I scoured their website and could not find a place to send complaints so I have penned a letter and put it in the mail to Coca-Cola.
My letter reads:
I am not a regular Coca Cola consumer however since childhood we have always made sure to buy "Santa Packs" during the holiday season. Your Santa packaging is a welcome reminder and sign of the holidays. I appreciate your efforts towards Polar Bear preservation and awareness and enjoy seeing them on the Diet Coke products. However I wish that next year the Santa packaging is brought back as it is a part of our holiday traditions as I am sure it is for many other families. We will choose not to buy Coca Cola this holiday season solely because of the packaging and the absence of the Santa.
Out of all the things in the world that I could take my time to fight for I wrote to Coke about Santa packaging. Yep, it's official, I am a bit ridiculous.
