Description: This is going to be another simple drawing tutorial. I figured that Christmas is around the corner and the more excited I get the more Christmas things I want to draw. So for my third tutorial of the day I am going to show you how to draw a simple Christmas tree. Now I love Christmas (as many of use that practice this holiday do) and there is one thing that I love about this warm feeling holiday, the presents. If you was to ask that age old question “who started the idea of a Christmas tree” you wouldn’t get a direct answer because there is no history of any one person starting such a tradition. The earliest known Christmas tree can be dated back to the 1500’s in Germany. Now in a place called the Cathedral of Strasbourg the church record statements that a Christmas tree was placed behind closed doors. Traditionally these trees are evergreens that come from veriest forest. You can either purchase a real pine smelling tree, or a store bought plastic boxed up tree. My family usually buys a real tree because it smells up the house something nice and it is more Christmassy as well. When you have the tree in your home you put it on a stand and decorate it with ornaments, and garland, a bunch of Christmas lights, tassel, strands of popcorn, and other seasonal objects that can be hung up on a tree. After your tree is all nice and decorated the last thing to be placed at the very top is the star. Some people use angels, but my family uses a nice big bright star. This tutorial will show you an easy way to draw a simple Christmas tree step by step. This was really fun for me to do because I got to decorate my tree early this year. Well I will be back with two more tutorials in a bit and remember today is Christmas theme day.
