"It was the night before Christmas, 40 below, when Snoopy went up in search of his foe." - "Snoopy's Christmas," song by The Royal Guardsmen

Would you like to learn how to draw Christmas Snoopy - your favorite cartoon canine wearing a Santa hat and holding a present? This easy, step-by-step cartoon character drawing tutorial is here to show you how.

Snoopy is a starring character in the Peanuts comics and cartoons by Charles Schulz. He is a pet beagle who belongs to Charlie Brown.

Snoopy's first Christmas special was A Charlie Brown Christmas, which debuted in 1965. In it, Snoopy's doghouse wins a Christmas decorating contest.

Other Peanuts Christmas specials included It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown, Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales and I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown. Snoopy, of course, played a starring role in each.

During the 1960s, the band The Royal Guardsmen released a Christmas song featuring one of Snoopy's most famous alternate identities - that of a World War I flying ace facing off against the Red Baron. In the song, the two enemies put warfare aside to enjoy a Christmas truce.
