On the Internet you will find images of all kinds.

Traditional Christmas images
Christmas is tradition. And of course, there are many people who prefer traditional images . Those that we have always seen and those that are inspired by the religious events of the time: the birth of Jesus. We have selected a series of images to download that are the most inspiring, but always made in traditional techniques and inspired by the Christmas of a lifetime.
One of the ones that we liked the most is this landscape, with a man on a donkey and a very traditional Christmas landscape.

The Nativity Scene is one of the classics of any home where Christmas is celebrated intensely. Putting the crib is quite an event, especially when there are children at home. That is why we wanted to offer you a series of images related to this tradition. Because surely they will also be useful to inspire you. And if not, look at this Nativity scene that knows how to perfectly combine the modern with the traditional. It is a lovely nativity with the tree lights in the background. Lovers of this tradition will love it.

Here you will see the adoration of the Three Wise Men, who brought the baby Jesus incense, gold and myrrh.
You may prefer to go for illustrations . Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean we have to limit ourselves to traditional nativity scenes and figurines. To congratulate Christmas, you can also use modern illustrations. They are inspired by Christmas and reflect moments of celebration, such as a Christmas carol cantata or Christmas songs in front of a tree.

Traditional images in Catalonia, Euskal Herria, Cantabria ...
Spain is made up of very diverse communities and with very particular celebrations. For example, in Catalonia the traditional tió is celebrated. It is a custom that can also occur in areas of Aragon and that consists of feeding a log during the days before Christmas. On the night of the 24th, the children beat Tió with a stick and he shitted sweets, chocolates and nougats.
In the networks we have found a lot of beautiful images of this character of Christmas in Catalonia. You can download this one of the Tió in the middle of the meadow, a traditional image of the Tió at home, a pile of stacked logs, or even this one, so traditional that it is crocheted.
In the Basque Country and Navarra there is another character, called Olentzero , typical of the Basque Christmas tradition. A chickadee of mythological origin who brings gifts on Christmas Day in Euskal Herria. Its origin is in the Lesaca area (Navarra) and we also have images to represent this character from the region. This beautiful drawing of the Olentzero will delight the little ones in the house, who are surely already looking forward to it.
We have found representative images of the Olentzero, in this loaded with gifts, others of more traditional, more graphic and fun, mysterious and even photographs of the real character. The same one that in just six days will bring Basque and Navarrese children a lot of gifts .
Another important character is the Pandigueiro or Apalpador is a traditional character from Galicia. It is about a chickadee who brings gifts to children, although his day is actually December 31st. It is giant and is part of fantasy. The little ones are told that this character comes down from the mountains at Christmas to feel the little ones' bellies and check if they are well fed.
Traditionally, as a gift he left them some hot chestnuts . On the net you will find very beautiful images of the Apalpador, others to wish happy holidays and beautiful illustrations to use as Christmas postcards.
The Esteru is another character from the peninsula. A magical and good-natured man, very similar to Olentzero, but especially famous in Ruiseñada, a town in Cantabria . As if this were not enough, the Anjanas also arrive in Cantabria, which are mythological fairies that arrive on January 6. And they bring gifts to the little ones. Here are images of the Esteru, which you can use to add to your Christmas greetings. Anjanas are very present in Cantabrian Christmas, so you can find many images on the Internet.
Christmas postcards with beautiful images
The Christmas cards are still alive. There are many people who are still dedicated to sending Christmas and even making them themselves, with the little ones or as adults. Because it is already known that Christmas is exciting for everyone. On this occasion, we want to offer you a good number of Christmas postcards with beautiful images that you can print yourself or use to get ideas.
We have found these irresistible loving reindeer, traditional drawings of snow and Christmas tree, affectionate owls, endearing reindeer with little eyes that move, Christmas trees recycled with the tip of pencils, one with the image and graphics of Santa Claus or Santa Claus (whatever you want to call it), another with colored trees and balls and simple geometries, some wise men lost in the vastness of its GPS, a tree that doesn't want to get electrocuted, designs made with paper, an interesting formula to take advantage of your colored buttons, a singing reindeer and one with some funny nougat.
Winter images without religious motives
Christmas is an eminently religious time. Tradition urges us that, although we are not deeply Christian and practicing, we celebrate Christmas knowing that we are remembering the Christian story of the birth of the Messiah. And all those elements that surround the original story.
However, in many places what is celebrated is the winter solstice. It is a way to celebrate the arrival of this season or the passage from autumn to winter . Something that in some cities, such as Madrid, has already been done. That is why, in order for images of all tastes to be included here, we have decided to look for winter images that do not contain religious motifs.
It will be a good way to celebrate the arrival of this season with your loved ones. You have a picture of a frozen moon, a deserted and snowy landscape, fir trees in the snow, a snowflake, a landscape of trees, fir trees, a winter river, a house with a sunset, New York and snow, snowmen funny snow, a bench in the middle of the landscape, a breathtaking view of some trees, Italy in winter or a girl in the snow.
Christmas drawings to paint ideal for children
Many children love to paint pictures. And it is normal that at Christmas they ask you for drawings and more drawings to color their favorite Christmas characters . This is also a good way to keep them entertained while they are at home enjoying their winter holidays.
The drawings that we propose below are blank , so you can print them so that they can paint them as they want. You have endless options: snowman, Santa Claus with a tree, a family of children unwrapping presents, Santa Claus with a reindeer, angels making a snowman, the three wise men, the annunciation star, Christmas socks, Mickey and Minnie, a Christmas elf and reindeer, Christmas Mickey Mouse, some candles, Santa Claus and his presents, a very simple Christmas tree and Santa Claus himself.

Christmas coloring pages for adults
Do you know what mandalas are? Did you have the slightest idea that adults can also paint pictures and that they can also do it to relax? Chromotherapy is a growing technique that helps us escape and that offers us the possibility of being more creative in our day to day life. Something that is not easy, especially with daily stress, obligations and the busy life that surrounds us.
If you go to a bookstore or a large shopping center, you will see that adult painting books are in fashion . So you will find many options to acquire and give to your relatives. Or to indulge yourself, that if it works for you, it may even be healing.
But do you want to try before you buy anything? An interesting option is to print coloring pages that are, of course, for adults. However, since we are at Christmas, the best thing you can do is download coloring pages inspired by these dates . Could there be anything better than painting and relaxing by the light of the Christmas tree?
The drawings that you can find to color, specially designed for adults, and inspired by Christmas are listed below.

Art and Christmas
If you want to celebrate Christmas and you are also an art fan, you also have the option of sending your friends, family and relatives a work of art. Christmas has served as an inspiration for many artists today and forever. So nothing better than to rescue a pictorial work of his to add a message to it (or not, it is already known that an image is worth a thousand words) and publish it on social networks. Or send it through WhatsApp.
Those that we have compiled are the following:
The Birth of Jesus by Giotto Di Bondone
Triptych of Santa Columba. Adoration of the Magi by Rogier Van der Weyden
Nativity of Sandro Botticcelli
The Adoration of the Magi by Leonardo Da Vinci
Adoration of the Shepherds by Giorgione
The Adoration of the Magi by Rubens
Adoration of the Shepherds by Francisco de Zurbarán
The Adoration of the Shepherds by Rembrandt
If you want, in addition, here we have found some images of less classical paintings. But they are also precious to download and send through networks .
Another option, if you prefer modern works of art, you can also take a look at these other images that we have also found on the networks. This one by Antonio Berni seems beautiful to us, which is also focused on social conscience. We must not lose sight of the fact that many families will not have as much fun as they would like this Christmas. This image can be great to share and at the same time spread a message of awareness , recognition and respect.
Here you also have a unique pictorial work. It has an abstract style, but the figure of the Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus is clearly observed. If you want to share a modern Christmas message, but framed in the traditional one, this image will come to you not even painted.
Here you also have a traditional image of a manger, very colorful and beautiful. Another colorful image of a Christmas tree with hearts, the sea of fun. A bird that heralds good news. Or the fish that drink in the river. Street art, also inspired by Christmas. Or this somewhat sinister Christmas, according to the painter Pieter Brueghel.
If you prefer a more idyllic and snowy landscape, here is this idyllic snowy image. A reindeer, typical of Christmas, whose horns seem to bloom. An urban setting from the end of the last century, between snow, costumes and lights. A painting by Camille Pissarro, of a natural landscape in winter. A mountain landscape, full of snow and two people walking.
Memes About Christmas
And we end this special of images about Christmas with something very funny: memes . Surely by now, five days before we celebrate Christmas Eve, your brother-in-law will have already filled your meme gallery with images and jokes related to company dinners, family conflicts at Christmas and many other jokes related to binge-eating. Which is what brothers-in-law usually talk about.
Just in case you haven't seen and sent enough memes yet, here are a few that will delight your WhatsApp groups of family and friends. You have memes that talk about the excessive use we make of mobile phones in homes and at family gatherings in general. The one with the tenth of the Christmas Lottery that the bank does not want to pay you. The one with this dog stoically awaiting the arrival of Christmas. The one with the cat who completely renounces Christmas (and being nice). This one about the true origin of Santa Claus toys. Or this one, of Santa's reindeer in minimal services. With so much vindication here there is no one who works!
This is for when Christmas is over and you propose to your family to remove the decorations. A malicious cat, ready to destroy that precious Christmas present that you have just been given. And a withering message from Santa Claus, reminding you that you have to get to work on spelling if you want to keep posting things on Facebook. The tremendous step we take from December to January. Or you and your slim figure before the 24th and after this nougat festival. Silly question, about Christmas and the Flintstones. The face you get when your boss tells you that this year he is not giving you a ham or a Christmas basket. And, in case you win the lottery, Montoro's capricious participation in your tenth. Why is this not so funny?
