Which Christmas Drawings Are Your Favorites?
Looking at this big round-up, which holiday art and Christmas drawings are your favorite? I’m partial to the present drawing, myself.
How to Spell Christmas
In addition to being an artist, I’m also an English teacher, so I can’t resist adding in a lesson on how to spell Christmas. In fact, this holiday belongs on our list of hard words to spell, because people often leave out the “t” in the middle, or add an extra “s” at the end, writing misspellings such as “Chrismas” or “Chrismass,” or “Christmass.”
The history of the holiday helps us remember the spelling: it is “Christmas,” with a “t” in the middle, and just one “s” at the end. Now, what about its capitalization?
Is Christmas Capitalized?
The answer to “Is Christmas capitalized?” is less complicated than the details in our article, “Is Happy New Year Capitalized?” Because Christmas is a holiday and all holidays are proper nouns, it should ALWAYS be capitalized.
That said, be careful not to capitalize the words around it, unless they are part of the proper noun, such as “Christmas Day.” For example, as we learned in our Christmas tree drawing article, the “tree” remains lower case unless it’s part of a heading or title, because it’s a common noun.
Christmas Drawings, in Sum
I hope this round-up of Christmas drawings (plus the spelling and capitalization lesson) has been useful and jolly for you! What art would you like me to illustrate and teach next? Do share!
