Christmas lovers, take note! Coca Cola’s festive truck kicks off its annual UK tour in Glasgow – although organizers have revealed it will be a little different than usual.

It comes after last year’s disappointment when the famous red truck was canceled for the first time in 10 years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 14-ton truck, decorated with Christmas lights and handing out free soda cans, has traveled across the country for the past nine years, stopping at malls and supermarkets.

And the iconic lorry, signaling for many in Britain that Christmas is just around the corner, kicks off its celebratory tour at Glasgow’s Silverburn Shopping Center on Wednesday 24 November.

But a spokesperson told The daily star that while the truck plays the beloved tune ‘the holidays are coming!’ all over the streets, organizers had to adjust plans due to Covid-19 fears – meaning other dates will be released at a later date.

“The team behind the amazing truck tour understand that everyone really wants the truck to come to their city because people love it,” they wrote.

“But it’s been an unprecedented year and it will be a little bit different because of that. There won’t be a long list of dates announced at once.

“The locations are still in the works and will be announced region by region when confirmed and people have enough time to plan their visit.”

A source further explained that this is so that people will not be disappointed if further restrictions are put in place by the government down the road.

“Coca Cola wants to give everyone that Christmas magic,” they said. “This Christmas is more important than any other year and they don’t want people to feel let down, so we have to make sure everything is right.”

Hundreds of fans are expected to see the highly anticipated festive truck – including a woman who tweeted: ‘Patiently waiting for the @CocaCola_GB truck tour announcement to be announced…’

The drinks giant replied: ‘Keep an eye on our socials…’

When another Christmas fan asked, “So no idea if it’s coming back?” Coca-Cola teased, “Holidays are coming…” followed by a Santa emoji.
