Deck Your WordPress with Boughs of Holly for a WordPress Christmas

It’s a Very Merry WordPress Christmas

It’s that time of year again, and many of us look forward to Christmas decorations and the displays of lights around the neighbourhood.  Well the web is no different. People are looking for ways to make their website shine and show off the coolest decorations.

Here are some simple plugins to decorate your WordPress website for the holidays.

Have Yourself a very merry WordPress Christmas.

Holiday Message

Start with Holiday Message Plugin. This plugin allows you to place a custom festive message with your choice of Santa, Snowman, Christmas Tree, Carol Singers or a menorah in your choice of colours.  You can even add a snowfall effect to it all.  You can get it here.


Xmas Lights

Next you need some lights to hang from the top of your website. You will want to check out the following plugin Xmas Lights. While this plugin is about a year old now, it is still pretty great and does a nice simple job of hanging some Christmas lights from the top of your website. It goes quite nice with the Holiday message plugin. You can get it here.


Snow, balloons and more

And now you might want to add a little holiday cheer with some snow, balloons and more… like  falling Santas, trees or snow flakes all over. Add this great little plugin, which is also good for other festive occasions. A special treat of this plugin is you can limit it to specific pages. and you can add you own images to really get creative. The other bonus is that you can have it stop snowing after a few seconds so as not to annoy your visitors. You can get it here.


And finally you can add a Snowman message to greet the visitors to your website with this simple little plugin. This presents a couple of animated Snowmen who come in from the side of the screen to a simple melody, share a scarf and then disappear. It hassettings for individual pages and to show it only once. You can get it here.

So have a very merry WordPress Christmas. Enjoy your holidays.

    Those are pretty cool John.  I was dreaming up a plugin that I had on my to do list that just added some holly to the top corners of a site.  Just nice and simple.  My to do list is too long and perhaps next Christmas I will have time to make it.  In the meantime these will work for me!

     Thanks Chris,

    If you do one with Holly in the corners then it will make a site look nice, maybe someone can combine them all into one that would be cool.
