O ASCII Tree…
Christmas Trees in ASCII Text Art
I love the Christmas tree. It’s my favourite Christmas holiday tradition. I like making ornaments and then sitting back with a hot chocolate to see the tree all decorated, light up, glittering and shining.

Christmas Trees in ASCII Text Art
An ASCII art tree can be very simple to make. Just some slanty lines and a little something at the top of the tree and you can create a picture representing a Christmas tree. Or, you can work on something more complicated and really get into showing the Christmas tree, your feelings about it and how you see them.

Some of the simplest looking ASCII Christmas trees take awhile to work on, with getting the right shapes and moving things around to line up the way you need them.

Christmas Ornaments, Bells and Candles in ASCII Text Art

Decorating the Christmas tree is different every year, even if you have the same ornaments. They never go on in the same order or the same way each year.
Christmas Ornaments, Bells and Candles in ASCII Text Art
It’s been awhile since people decorated the Christmas tree with candles. They turned out to be a pretty bad idea when it came to fire hazards. But they did look pretty. That’s why we started using electric lights instead.

I only have a couple of typical bells on my tree. My favourite are jingle bells and I do have far more of those than the traditional bell shaped bells. I even have a wreath made of jingle bells for the door. It would be far too heavy for the tree.

One thing I have a real assortment of are the Christmas balls. So many colours to choose from.
