Santa Claus in ASCII Text Art
Have you been naughty or nice? What would Santa say?
Here are lots of Santa Claus and Saint Nicholas pictures done in ASCII art. Christmas time seems to have the biggest collection of such art. I think it's because this artistic method is so easy to send in an email. Or, it used to be. Now HTML email has messed things up and you need to send the ASCII art in an image file instead of just the plain text copied into an email. You can also send the art in a txt file, attached to an email. But, you must let people know what you are sending in an attached file.
Santa Claus has become a big part of Christmas, very commercialized. Not surprising there are plenty of ASCII art creations of Santa. Some people color the art. It takes some extra time and knowledge of HTML codes. Santa does look nice in the traditional red and white rather than the black, white, and greyscale of standard ASCII text.
Happy Holidays and enjoy the Santas!
