learn to draw a Christmas tree step by step

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new NIL-Tech drawing tutorial: "The Christmas tree". We celebrated Christmas, and now it's time to celebrate New Year! A lot of excitement, fun, resolutions for the next year, and delicious foods. It is one of the most exciting events of the whole year, and we can't wait for the New Year to arrive.

Here are some interesting facts about the New Year:

1. 1st January was accepted as New Year in 46 BC by Julius Caesar. England and also the American colonies of England embraced this day only in 1752.

2. Whatever New Year traditions we mention are meant for bringing good luck, as an example, eating black-eyed peas on the day of New Year is thought to bring good luck in several parts of the USA.

3. Speaking of traditions, we can not miss out on the Estonian practice of eating 7, 9, or 12 dishes on the eve of New Year. They believe that eating that many meals will give them the strength of that many individuals in the year that comes.

4. Spanish tradition is to eat 12 grapes at midnight on 31st December. While eating these grapes, Spaniards are making wishes. This tradition is thought to bring luck to those who practice it. This grape consuming tradition started back in 1895.

5. New Year's Eve has a unique name in Belgium. It is called Sint Sylvester Vooranvond. People in this country toast with usual champagne and kids write letters to godparents or parents on the day of New Year.
