Christmas tree

LaTeX package, which can be uses to format your Christmas letters in form of a Christmas tree.

The package provides a macro \baum[segments]{rows}{top} which typesets the following paragraph in the form of a fir tree with segments (default: 3) segments in the crown of the tree, which has a height of rows rows. For optical reasons the top element top gets a special consideration.

Needed packages:

  • Package calc.sty which is included at least in my distribution.

For advices, how to enhance the calculation and how to deal with the problem, that the next paragraph stops the beautiful format, you won't get a fee but I would be very thankful for it.

Installation: Just copy the file to a suited place in your LaTeX tree or into the same directory where LaTeX will be run.
