Its red logo and dazzling lights are synonymous with Christmas, and spotting the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck can only mean one thing: 'holidays are coming'!
Coca-Cola has already confirmed that the festive Christmas Truck Tour will make a return this year, with its first stop already underway this week.
Last year, the Christmas tour was cancelled due to coronavirus.
This year, the good people at Coca Cola are making up for the lost time by visiting as many cities in the UK as possible.
What is the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour?
The Christmas Truck Tour is Coca-Cola's way of spreading a bit of much-needed festive fun, with the famous red truck heading to cities across the UK.
It's an Instagram-worthy opportunity to take joyful photos and enjoy a free bottle of the good stuff.
Tour-goers wrap up warm in hats, gloves and scarves and come together over their mutual love for the bottle of fizz, while they're wowed by the festive lights and music.
How did the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour Come About?
The iconic red truck has been associated with Christmas ever since it was revealed in the soft drink giant's 'Holidays Are Coming' advert in 1995.
Thanks to the festive commercial, the Coca-Cola trucks have gained popularity and toured the UK on a Christmas Truck Tour every year.
When will the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck come to my city?
The UK tour for the Coca-Cola truck has already begun, with Glasgow being the first stop for the festive tour.
The Christmas truck will first land at Silverburn Shopping Centre on 24 November until 25 November, before making its way to Newcastle on 26 November.
Then the team at Coca Cola will head to White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds from 27 November to 28 November.
Dates for its arrival in Liverpool and beyond are yet to be confirmed, with the soft drinks brand surprising cities with a small window of notice in case the pandemic disrupts their schedule.
A source told the Daily Star earlier this week: "The team behind the amazing truck tour understand that everyone is really keen the truck comes to their town because people love it.
"But it has been an unprecedented year and because of this, things will be a little bit different. There won't be a long list of dates announced at once.
"Locations are still being finalised and will be announced region by region when they are confirmed and people will still have enough time to plan their visit."
