How do you mark the start of the holiday season?

Do you wait for that last leaf to fall? The first dusting of snow? Or maybe you start cranking your holiday music on November first.

If you’re still waiting for a sign, Coca-Cola Canada just launched its holiday campaign with three exciting reasons to get into the spirit of the season!

To kick things off, Coca-Cola Canada is thrilled to announce the incredibly popular ‘Share a Coke’ program is back for the holidays! Over 1,000 of Canada’s most popular names are available on 500 mL bottles of Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Coca-Cola Life and Diet Coke for the holiday season. ‘Share a Coke’ fountain cups will also be available, with five festive themes.

"We're very excited about the return of 'Share a Coke' here in Canada and we know Canadians are too," said Michael Samoszewski, Vice President of Marketing for Coca-Cola Canada. "Share a Coke bottles make great personalized gifts for the holidays. They can be given as stocking stuffers and holiday party favours, substitute table place cards, and they pair perfectly with meals, making holiday gatherings even more magical."

Of course, the easiest way to tell the holidays are upon us is when Santa Claus begins to pop up in store windows and on shelves. Coca-Cola’s history with Santa dates back to the 1920s, and it’s no wonder he’s making an appearance on select products for the holidays. This season, keep an eye out for Santa as he adorns packaging of all four variants of Coca-Cola for the first time ever.

If celebrating the holidays with tea is more your thing, NESTEA will transport you to a bustling Christmas Market with NESTEA: Festive Tea, Mulled Plum. Available for a limited time in 500 mL bottles, this welcomed addition to your holiday party can be enjoyed either hot or cold while supplies last.

With Coca-Cola and NESTEA, there’s a beverage for everyone to kick off the holiday season!
