how to draw the grinch

Hi everybody and welcome to a brand-new tutorial on the NIL-Tech, this time titled "How to draw The Grinch step by step easy”.

The Grinch is an imaginary character produced by Dr. Seuss. He is best called the primary character of the children's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957 ). He has been played by many different actors, including Boris Karloff, Hans Conried, Jim Carrey and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Fun Christmas Facts:

1. "Jingle Bells" was written for Thanksgiving, not Christmas. The tune was written in 1857 by James Lord Pierpont and published under the title "One Horse Open Sleigh". It was expected to be played in the composer's Sunday school class during Thanksgiving as a way to honor the famed Medford sleigh races. "Jingle Bells" was also the very first tune to be broadcast from space.

2. In the Netherlands, Sinterklaas (the Dutch version of Santa Claus) arrives from Spain, not from the North Pole. And that's not the only strange feature of the Dutch Christmas. Sinterklaas has his little helpers. However, they are not lovely hard-working fairies: they are black-faced young boys and ladies who can steal your kids if they misbehave, and bring them to back Spain which is, according to the Dutch, an extreme punishment.

3. Japanese people traditionally consume at KFC for Christmas dinner. Although the percentage of Christian individuals in Japan is close to zero, every Christmas, kids, and grown-ups head to the nearest KFC to delight in some fried chicken - the closest food to turkey that you can get in Japan. It's all thanks to a successful "Kentucky for Christmas!" marketing project in 1947. First aimed at immigrants, KFC offered a "Christmas supper" that contained chicken and red wine - a meal that remotely resembled the food expats and travelers had at home. After a substantial success, Kentucky Fried Chicken started promoting this deal every year, up until the junk food chain became strongly associated with the holiday season.

4. The first artificial Christmas Tree wasn't a tree at all. It was created out of goose plumes that were colored green. The very first synthetic Christmas trees were established in Germany in the 19th century, due to significant constant logging. The plume trees ended up being progressively popular throughout the early 20th century, and lastly made their way to the US.

5. Iceland has 13 Santas and an older woman who abducts kids. Christmas in Iceland is a colorful combination of religion, fairy tales, and folklore. Instead of one Santa, the kids are visited by 13 Yule Lads that either reward children for great behavior or punish them if they were naughty. The vacation duration starts 13 days before Christmas and each day one of the 13 Yule Lads concerns houses and fills the shoes that kids leave under the Christmas tree either with sugary foods and small presents or rotting potatoes, depending on how that particular kid has acted on the preceding day. The mother of Yule Lads, half-troll, half-beast, horrifying older woman Grýla, kidnaps naughty kids and boils them in her cauldron.
