Coca Cola has announced its Christmas truck tour of the UK will go ahead this year - signalling a start to the festive season.

The truck, which is painted in the drinks giant's trademark red hue, usually visits around 40 locations from the end of November.

Though it usually makes dozens of stops, Coca Cola is remaining tight-lipped about the full tour schedule, the Daily Star reports.

On previous visits, hundreds of Brits can be seen travelling to their closest truck to grab a free bottle of coke and take some Christmassy snaps for social media

For countless families, the return of the truck marks the start of festive period.

Even the announcement of the tour has set social media ablaze, with many users unable to contain their excitement over the upcoming event.

Others have quizzed the drinks giant on Twitter, and asked them to reveal more details.

Though the brand is keeping many details secret, Coca-Cola GB have left clues and cryptic messages dotted around their social media accounts.

They appear to be hinting that the Yuletide lorry will grace British towns any day now.

The drinks giant replied: "Keep your eyes on our socials..."

Replying to another post, Coca-Cola wrote: "We're just recruiting the last of our reindeer..."

Another concerned fan asked: "So not even a clue if it is coming back?"

Other hints include the brand writing: "We've spoken to Santa and he seems pretty eager to us."

Excited Coke fans are hoping the grand reveal will come this weekend.

Others say they will put up their Christmas tree on the day its announced.

The tour locations are annually anticipated, with fans eager to find out where they can see the Christmas lorry.

Coca Cola update the list of touchdown towns and cities each year to "include more and more locations".

"We hope we get to see you!", they said.

This sounds similar to the Holiday Truck that is going Coast to Coast across Canada. A friend from high school is the regional manager for Coca-Cola. I reached out to him to offer my services when I found out this was happening.

Long story short, for this year they were using a Coca-Cola employee to portray Santa (literally the truck driver) with the same driver going coast to coast, with Santa staying in the truck at all times. BUT, he wants to reconnect about next year 😊

    • How do You Portray Santa?
      Portraying Santa is acting; it is a characterization of a mythical character.

      Most of us never think of ourselves as actors, but we are. Certain characteristics of Santa Claus have been handed down from one generation to another. The way we dress and conduct ourselves all follow an established pattern.

      Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable characters throughout the world. This came about from the advertising campaign of the Coke Cola Company and the creative painting genius, of Haddon Sundblom. Coke Cola was looking to increase winter sales of its soft drink and hired Sundblom to produce illustrations for prominent magazines. These illustrations appeared during the holiday season from the late 1930s into the early 1970s and set the standard for how Santa should look.

      This characterization of Santa with rosy cheeks, a white beard, handlebar mustache plus a red costume trimmed in white fur is the image most everyone has in their minds. Unconsciously people are going to judge you against that image. If your beard isn’t white or you have a soiled suit it will register with the onlooker.

      By the way, the majority of Sundblom's paintings depict Santa with a Brown Belt and Brown Boots. Not until his later illustrations did he change the color to Black for these items. Within the past few years many costume companies have offered the Coke Cola Suit and it has become very popular. You can tell it by the large buttons and absence of fur down the front of the jacket.

      No matter how you portray Santa, be it home visits, schools, churches, parades, corporate events, malls, hospitals we all make an entrance and an impression! The initial impression we make determines if our client will ask us to return.

      The 5 Second Rule

      I have a theory: When you enter the presence of your audience you have about 5 seconds to make people believe you are the real Santa.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.
