Christmas Landscape Images
When we think of Christmas, it is inevitable to think of a snowy winter landscape. A night in the light of the moon with mysterious animals or a house in the heart of a forest. What we present below is a collection of Christmas landscapes perfect to use as postcards(You can send them through WhatsApp along with a beautiful phrase or even print them) or as wallpapers for your computer, your tablet or mobile phone. They can also be used to decorate a room in the house or even as a background for the Nativity scene. Let's see what we can find on the internet and totally free: a first beautiful landscape of a snowy village with a church, a path that leads to a snowy town at night, the snow falls at night on the white landscape, a Christmas scene typical with a river running through the village, a fir forest with an illuminated tree in the center, the typical icy, white and luminous landscape that you can use as a wallpaper, the mountains in winter, a tree illuminated at night and some little birds that seem to converse in the heart of winter.
Christmas tree images
If there is a leading figure at Christmas, it is the tree. It is present in many houses in the world, but also in the streets, in shopping centers and in any establishment that receives visits from people during these dates . Tradition says that the Christmas tree has to be set up and decorated on December 8 and kept that way until January 6, which is the day of the Kings. But this is done here and in all parts of the world.
The origins of this custom speak about the fact that the Germans thought that both the Earth and the Astros were hanging on a giant tree, called Divine Idrasil or Tree of the Universe. They also believed that their roots were buried in hell and the cup, right in heaven. Beyond this story, between legend and tradition, it is clear that there are few things that dress as much for Christmas as a nice decorated and illuminated tree. Below you can see, download, share or print a good collection of Christmas tree images: a traditional tree in a tiny house, a very bright and colorful tree in a modern house, a very minimalist Christmas tree for the home, in the heart of a snowy landscape, a Christmas tree with gifts made and drawn in cross stitch, a black and white Christmas tree and a precious little decorated tree.
Images of stars, balls and other Christmas elements
There are many other elements, such as stars or balls for the tree , that are typically Christmass and that you have the option of using as postcards or to send through WhatsApp. Take a look at the following: the drawing of some gold stars, a star background, a lot of colored stars, stars flying through the sky, Christmas stars on a red background, four orange stars, a collection of nine gold stars, stars precious blue and white (porcelain), luminous stars on a black background and a shower of stars.
Do you prefer Christmas balls? They are another very nice option, so we are going to recommend a few. The first ones that we propose are made of ropes. A pink ball with a lot of brilli-brilli, a yellow and orange one, a very elegant red ball, a Christmas and nature ball, red and white balls, a lot of combined red balls and stars, four Christmas balls and four different colors for your tree, Christmas balls in gold and brown or a collection of very original Christmas decorations.
But we have more interesting tidbits. How about a nice still life with Christmas fruits? In autumn it is the most opportune, but it is also it at Christmas. Here are some nuts for Christmas, all of them arranged in a bowl. Although there are more attractive ways to present them: making, for example, the shape of a tree. You also have white candles surrounded by almonds, a tree of spices and nuts, a little holly, orange and dried fruits, walnuts, more spices, orange, cloves and cinnamon and a wreath of red fruits, the most typical of Christmas.
And now that we've touched on the topic of nuts, you know that there is no Christmas without a feast in between. So for the most foodies, we have chosen to select a collection of images with Christmas food, perfect to get ideas for the menu or simply suitable to share with your loved ones. Especially if they are as fans of food and Christmas as you. What we propose is to download a selection of images with desserts. See how beautiful and appetizing they are just by looking at them: cookie trees with icing sugar, Christmas cookies in red and white, Santa Claus with strawberry and cream, a selection of Christmas cookies, reindeer in cookie format, cupcakes and super sweet desserts , cream tartlets with berries, Oreo cookies with trees, Christmas jellies, cupcakes with Christmas trees, Christmas Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, truffles and more cookies. Can you succeed more? (in this case through the palate).
Religious images, of the Bethlehem and births
There is one thing that we cannot ignore. Christmas is a time inspired by religion, despite the fact that the arrival of winter plays a decisive role in its establishment. But if we look back at our sociocultural roots, we will realize that the spirit of Christmas has been inoculated into us through religion. During Christmas we tell the story of the birth of Jesus Christ: the annunciation, the arrival of the baby Jesus in very difficult conditions, the adoration of the shepherds, the arrival of the Magi, and so on.All these elements are, for example, in the manger, but we can also see them represented in images. In fact, we have made a selection of religious images, nativity scenes and nativity scenes that you may also find useful to share, whether you are religious or if you like traditional prints.
Let's start with a typical birth, the kind that we could find in any traditional home . We also have a cartoon nativity, one with the Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph and the child Jesus in the foreground, the adoration of the Magi in the portal of Bethlehem, an illustration of the night in which Jesus, Joseph and Mary were born with the little one in arms, a beautiful picture of the adoration of the shepherds or the birth of Jesus with the ox and the mule, which are also tradition.
Christmas illustrations and drawings
Photos are one thing and the many possibilities that illustrations and drawings can offer us are another. In this case, they can be very useful if we want to share these images with children or if we prefer them aesthetically, to make Christmas a slightly more modern and updated celebration . If you don't know what kind of Christmas illustrations and drawings to download, we will make a proposal, divided by topic. In this way, you will find up to ten illustrations or drawings for each one of them and you can download and use the one you like the most of all. They are as follows:
- Magi . Who doesn't like the three wise men of the East? Children are delighted with them, so if you are going to make a postcard or have an activity in mind, you have here ten cool images to download: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
- Santa Claus . The chubby Lapland is another of the great favorites of the little ones. On the internet you can find illustrations of Santa Claus to bore you, but here you can download ten: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
- Gifts and toys . They are the great protagonists of the Christmas holidays. They arrive through the invisible friend, on Christmas Night aboard Santa's sleigh and also on January 6, with the Three Kings. Discover ten beautiful gift illustrations: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
- Snowy landscapes . Christmas is snow, cozy houses and endearing pictures. How about downloading one of these drawings? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
- End of the year . It is one of the most important celebrations of the year, because it is the last and because it marks the beginning of a new year. We have also found a good collection of illustrated end-of-year images that you can download here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
We have proposed an infinity of modern prints for Christmas, but art has dealt with this theme not infrequently. That is why we have an infinity of famous paintings, painted by the highest masters of pictorial art, that can inspire you on these dates.

Christmas tree decorations and cutouts
There is something very nice you can do this Christmas. And it's something you don't have to do alone. Do you have kids at home? Well in that case, get to work. You will need: scissors, glue and a lot of desire to have fun. Because we are going to propose a collection of cutouts. They are figures that you can assemble and that you can even use as decorations for the Christmas tree. Interesting, right? Well, let's see what we can find online that is free, fast and easy to do.
We have, to begin with, some Christmas trees that you can cut, paint and assemble and that can be ideal as decorations for the Christmas Eve table. Also Santa Claus, his helpers and a few wild animals, a box to store Christmas sweets and give it to those you love the most, a snowman that you can dress up, stars, a Christmas banner, little birds, balls, angels and bells to hang on the Christmas tree, the three wise men, stars, a pine tree and animals, plus decorative objects for the tree, a Santa Claus doll, a snowman, Santa Claus and a reindeer, a mobile reindeer or a very charming little house .
But we have more cool cutouts. Here a ball to hang on the tree, Christmas characters that you can use as decoration for any corner of the house, more small Christmas trees, a figure of Santa Claus and another a little more sophisticated. We have Saint Joseph, the Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus for those who want to set up the manger, a snowman to put on the table, a gingerbread house, the characters of the Bethlehem, four fir trees, Mrs. Santa Claus as doll to dress, another box for sweets, Santa Claus and his helpers to dress and the Birth of the Child Jesus.
Images of Christmas characters: Santa Claus and Three Wise Men
It is clear that the real stars of these parties are, by far, Santa Claus and the Three Kings. Of the first, tradition says that Santa Claus is a legendary character in Western culture who is responsible for bringing gifts to children at Christmas. It does so, specifically, during the night of December 24 to 25.
The figure is inspired by a Christian bishop of Greek origin named Nicholas. It seems that it existed during the 15th century in Anatolia (present-day Turkey). Today he is a fat man dressed in red who travels the world aboard a sleigh and an entourage of reindeer. What we propose below is the download of a total of twenty images of Santa Claus that you can print or share through the networks: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 , 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.
Three other very important figures of Christmas are, without a doubt, the Three Kings. They will arrive on the night of January 5 to delight the little ones with an infinity of presents and perhaps an occasional bag of coal. But where does his legend come from? It is a Christian tradition from the Ancient East , which says that after the birth of Jesus, the three Kings traveled from there to give him three gifts: gold, incense and myrrh. Here are twenty images of the Magi from the East for you: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.
Images of letters to Santa Claus and the Magi
For the Three Wise Men and Santa Claus to bring us things, first you have to write a letter. Children usually make them on the dates before Christmas to, in this way, indicate to their favorite characters what their wishes are. After having delivered the letters, it only remains to wait and cross your fingers for the good will of these magical characters to work. If the children have been good, they will surely receive all or most of the gifts they asked for . If it turns out to be the opposite, it is most likely that instead of the gifts it will be a good consignment of coal.
What we have prepared for all the families who are already thinking about the letter to the Magi and Santa Claus is a collection of images of letters that can be downloaded and printed completely free of charge. They are a good option for those who trust to deliver it to the royal helpers first-hand and that in this way it is the Kings themselves who read it and send their royal employees to make the packages. We propose a collection of twenty cards that you can download at no cost: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.
In our country, it is surely more tradition to write the letter to the Magi. But you already know that when it comes to incorporating traditions into our home, we almost never fall short. So for many children Santa Claus is as important as the three kings of the East. Those who want the fat old man from Lapland to bring them a few presents will have to send him a letter and write down which toys or gifts they would like to receive. If you are from this club, here are twenty letters that you can download in image format to print and then drop them in the mailbox of Santa's helpers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20. They are all very pretty and perfect for making lists as long as they are wide of the wishes of the little ones (and maybe also those who don't. are both).
