### Unicorn hat Xmas tree

The Unicorn Hat from Pimoroni is a great board for the raspberry Pi. It was just crying out for use as a Christmas decoration. So here's a quick bit of Python to generate an Xmas Tree.

A version (which may be updated) is also on github.  You'll obviously need the Pimoroni Unicorn Hat library for this to work!

import unicornhat as UH
import  sys, time
import random
UH.clear()

while True:
# create each row of the tree
for y in range(0,8):
for x in range(6,8):
UH.set_pixel(x,y, 0,255,0)
for y in range(1,7):
for x in range(4,6):
UH.set_pixel(x,y, 0,255,0)
for y in range(2,6):
for x in range(2,4):
UH.set_pixel(x,y, 0,255,0)
for y in range(3,5):
for x in range(0,2):
UH.set_pixel(x,y, 0,255,0)
UH.show()
#now generate the baubles at random
balbs = random.randint(1,5)
i = 1
while i <= balbs:
b1_y = random.randint(1,6)
b1_x = random.randint(4,5)
randr = random.randint(50,255)
randg = random.randint(50,255)
randb = random.randint(50,255)
i+=1
UH.set_pixel(b1_x,b1_y,randr, randg, randb)
balbs = random.randint(1,4)
i = 1
while i <= balbs:
b1_y = random.randint(0,7)
b1_x = random.randint(6,7)
randr = random.randint(50,255)
randg = random.randint(50,255)
randb = random.randint(50,255)
i+=1
UH.set_pixel(b1_x,b1_y,randr, randg, randb)
balbs = random.randint(1,3)
i = 1
while i <= balbs:
b1_y = random.randint(2,5)
b1_x = random.randint(2,3)
randr = random.randint(50,255)
randg = random.randint(50,255)
randb = random.randint(50,255)
i+=1
UH.set_pixel(b1_x,b1_y,randr, randg, randb)
UH.show()
time.sleep(0.4)
