How to Draw a Christmas Stocking

What is a Christmas stocking? Historically, a stocking was a long sock worn by both men and women. Christmas stockings, on the other hand, are large, oversize sock-shaped bags.

These are hung near the fireplace, near the Christmas tree, or on the bedpost in hopes that they will be filled with "stocking stuffers" - small toys, candy, fruit, coins, or other gifts.

The tradition of the Christmas stocking is thought to originate with Saint Nicholas. It was said that St. Nick threw bags of gold into the house of a needy family, and they fell into stockings hung by the fireplace to dry.

Odin, the mythological predecessor of St. Nick, was thought to leave gold in boots and wooden shoes left by the chimney.

Both Odin and St. Nick were said to ride a horse through the air and across the rooftops during a nocturnal ride.

After traveling to North America with Dutch settlers, these elements were adopted into Santa Claus and his reindeer-driven sleigh.

Originally, children simply hung their actual socks as receptacles for treats. By the 1800s, special stockings were sold for this purpose.

In some European countries, stockings are hung on the night of December 6 for the observance of Saint Nicholas Day, while in other areas the stockings are hung on Christmas Eve.

How to Draw a Swan

The swan is a type of large waterfowl or water bird. They are known for their grace, both as they glide across the water and as they fly with slow wingbeats in a V-formation.

Swans mate for life. The female is called the pen, and the male a cob. Young swans are called cygnets. Swans typically live 20 years in the wild and they can live as much as 50 years in captivity.

Swans have been used in artwork since ancient times, in paintings, statues, and architecture. One modern example in art and literature is that of the "Ugly Duckling" fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. It tells of a "duckling" who suffers abuse from other animals because he is different from his brothers. Eventually, he matures into a beautiful swan, symbolizing transformation for the better.

How to Draw Christmas Lights

Christmas lights are often used to decorate Christmas trees as well as the exteriors of houses, shrubbery, and outdoor trees. Where did the tradition of illuminating homes and trees with tiny lights originate?

The Christmas tree was popularized by European royalty in the early 1800s. Small candles were used on Christmas trees before the invention of the electric light bulb - such candles are still preferred in some regions.

This lighting was said to symbolize the Christ as "the light of the world." However, this custom was observed much earlier in religious celebrations across Europe.

Evergreen plants were used to decorate the home because these seemed to have an almost supernatural ability to thrive during the cold, dark winter.

Candles and fires were lit in hopes of reviving the "dying" sun. These two ancient customs were combined in the modern Christmas tree.

By the early twentieth century, strands of electric lights had become common Christmas tree decorations, and these had migrated into front yards across America by the 1950s and 1960s.

Homes were decked to resemble decorated gingerbread houses. Soon, the custom spread to other lands as well. Depending on the location, these may be called fairy lights, twinkle lights, holiday lights, Italian lights, or mini lights.

How to Draw Boxing Gloves

"A boxer's victory is gained in blood."
- Ancient Greek inscription, first century B.C.E.

Boxing, sometimes called pugilism or prizefighting, is a sport in which players wear padded gloves and attack and defend themselves using their fists. Each match, called a bout, has three to twelve rounds of three minutes each. A player wins by scoring a predetermined number of points or by rendering his opponent unable to continue.

Boxing became an Olympic sport in the year 688 B.C.E., but its origins are much earlier. Carvings up to 5,000 years old from Sumeria and Egypt feature boxers. Gloves were in use by at least 1500 B.C.E. - for practice rounds, at least, even if not used in actual competitions.

During the 1700s and 1800s, boxing has transformed from an illegal pastime to a respectable sport with required equipment and rules. Among these were "mufflers," as boxing gloves were then called, designed to protect the players from injury.

During the age of film, boxing took popular culture by storm. Matches featuring legendary greats like Muhamad Ali were televised, and fictional characters like Rocky Balboa were immortalized on film. Cartoon characters often donned gloves and took to the ring, sometimes symbolizing facing a great challenge.

How to Draw a Sandwich

A sandwich is any dish that uses one or more pieces of bread as a container or wrapper for food. Sandwiches may be sweet - such as peanut butter and jelly or ice cream sandwiches - or savory, hot or cold. Sandwich-like dishes exist in most world cultures today.

Using bread in such as way is probably as old as bread itself. For example, it is recorded that an ancient Jewish thinker wrapped lamb and herbs in flatbread.

Another predecessor of the sandwich might be the "trencher" of medieval Europe. Thick pieces of stale bread were used as plates. This bread, flavored with the juices of the meal, could then be eaten. This technique is still common in some countries today.

The term "sandwich" entered the English language in the 1700s. John Montagu, earl of an English town called Sandwich, loved to play cards. He had meat and bread brought to his gaming table so that he and his friends could continue to play as they ate. Soon, this snack was fashionable across Europe, and it was named for the earl of Sandwich.

During the industrial revolution of the 1800s, light, portable, and inexpensive meals became a necessity for the working class. This trend continued, both for employees and school children, throughout the twentieth century.

Sandwiches became even faster and easier to make with the invention of pre-sliced bread in 1928. Today, ready-made sandwiches and restaurants specializing in made to order sandwiches are common.

The sandwich is often used to represent childhood, especially the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In popular culture, large and elaborate sandwiches became known as "Dagwoods," named after a hungry character in the Blondie comic strip.

The popular Shopkins collectibles feature sandwich-themed characters, including Nice Cream Sandwich, Bagel Billy, Barbie Breakfast Muffin, Sconnie, and Tasty Toast.

Would you like to draw a tasty sandwich? Now you can, with the help of this simple, step-by-step drawing tutorial. It's the best thing since sliced bread. You will need only a pencil, pen, or marker and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to color your finished drawing using crayons, colored pencils, or markers.
