The countdown to Christmas has begun! As stores and houses are preparing with lights and music, there’s no reason why you can’t deck out your website with boughs of holly.
As we did last year with the post “Holiday Cheer With Plugins”, we have put together a short list of free Christmas plugins all available in the WordPress Plugin Repository.
Let us know in the comments below what your favourite WordPress plugins are to prepare your site for the festive season.
For the days before Christmas, display a simple advent calendar on your site. Advent Calendar lets you release new custom holiday theme images each day. This is a useful plugin for publishing exclusive content in the lead up to Christmas Day.
Add snow flakes falling down your WordPress site with this simple plugin. Snow Storm allows you to configure a few simple settings, such as the colour and amount of snow, mobile support, and whether it sticks to the bottom of the screen.
Add a simple string of colourful Christmas lights to your site to welcome your visitors this holiday season.
A delightful plugin! Snow, balloons and more lets you set up snowflakes, leaves, lights, Santa and even Christmas trees to drift down your site. Choose from GIF and PNG images. You can even set the speed of snow and – get this – the maximum wind strength!
Wish your visitors a happy holiday with this cute pop up message. This plugin allows you to display a message in different parts of the page. You can customize your Christmas message and choose from one of seven images.
