Want Clipart for Christmas or the Holidays?

This page contains links to clipart for Christmas or the winter holidays. It also contains suggestions for using the clip art and for modifying it in image editing software.

Christmas clipart is a great way to bring glad tidings and cheer to your web pages, your email messages, your Christmas letters and cards, your holiday ornaments and decorations, your table settings and to the craft projects that you make with your kids.

This page shows you where to find clipart of all varieties -- fun, inspirational, cute, religious, elegant, traditional or whatever type you want. Some of it is free and some has a price tag attached.

Of course, this applies to Winter Holiday clipart as well, since not everyone celebrates Christmas.

I am also going to show you how to modify and edit your Christmas clipart digitally using photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop CS or Adobe Photoshop Elements.
