Christmas Angels in ASCII Text Art

Making an ASCII art angel is only as tricky as you make it. My problem with them is the image I want to create (in my mind) never seems to work out the way I planned. I’ve never been satisfied with an angel I have created in ASCII art. But, I’m still working on it.

They seem simple enough in construction: a flowing sort of gown, a face, a halo and wings. Not too tough, right?

Santa and Sleigh for Christmas in ASCII Text Art

Small reindeers are not easy to make in ASCII art. I know because I have tried a few times over the years. The sleigh is the easiest part of Santa and his sleigh with the deers flying overhead.Santa and Sleigh for Christmas in ASCII Text Art

They need some rooftops to be flying over. Otherwise they are just hanging in midair and you don’t get the feeling of them being in action.
When you were a kid did you look out your window on Christmas Eve, wondering if you could catch sight of Santa and his sleigh? Did you listen (for as long as you could stay awake) for any sounds of footsteps on the roof? We were lucky enough to even have a fireplace and we did leave milk and cookies faithfully each holiday. Sometimes Santa would even take a break from his travels and leave a note for us.
I grew up as the oldest of four kids. Soon I was the one helping my sisters to put out the Santa snacks, including a carrot for the reindeer. It was nice having younger siblings cause I never had to stop believing in Santa completely.

This year, on Christmas Eve, take the time to listen for Santa Claus, this sleigh and the reindeer.

The Christmas ASCII Text Art House

Home for the Holidays is a well known theme for Christmas and in Christmas music and movies. There are even movies poking fun at decorating the house for Christmas. Some people go all out and it looks fabulous but it must cost them a fortune on their next bill from the power company. I appreciate the show they make.The Christmas ASCII Text Art House
There is nothing quite like seeing a house all done up, decorated and well lit, for the Christmas holidays.

I also love to see the Christmas village scenes. We never collected anything like that when I was a kid. So I lived vicariously through shopping malls everywhere. There was always a display set up in the mall, showing off the Christmas village and all the parts and pieces which could be collected to add to your village each year.

I created ASCII art of a Christmas house and the Christmas village. I even decorated my fireplace with the Christmas village, a smaller collection than many. But, none of them are in ASCII art.

One thing I did have was a snowglobe collection. I had three of them which I pulled out each Christmas. Others were not Christmas related. My Dad traveled for business for awhile, he brought me back a couple of snowglobes from far away. Eventually they were all lost, or thrown out when the water dried up or leaked out from inside them. Maybe the expensive snowglobes lasted longer. I hope so.
