Are you working on your WordPress blog to wish your readers Merry Christmas differently? You may already be using a WordPress Christmas Plugin or WordPress Christmas Theme to do so. But mostly, people want to add a bit of holiday flair to create a festive temperament without changing the theme actually. If you too want to do it without switching to a new theme, you can make use of these 10 awesome WordPress Christmas Plugins:
- WP Christmas
This plugin adds a snowmen animation with a wishful message and little bit of snow-falling effect on your page. The animation is really smooth with a nice little sound effect when the snowmen move out.
You can control plugin functionality like snowfall, cookie control, custom picture etc. and can limit and manage the display of welcome animated message on different pages using the several options in the plugin.
- Xmas Lights
Xmas Lights is a simple plugin which puts a string of blinking Christmas lights on the topmost area of your blog. It provides no settings and options, it will start working as soon as you install and activate it.
- Christmas Message
It allows you to display a custom Merry Christmas message in a bright-red splashing box with Santa Claus on top of it. It also provides simple settings page where you can set message, it’s heading, cookie-expiry etc.
- Fancy Events
This plugin offers several objects including Christmas trees falling down on your blog pages. You can also set the falling speed and transparency of object accordingly.
- Snow, Balloons and more
This one gives you a lot of options to control the type and the number of snowflakes and objects falling, multiple objects in the snow fall, object floating direction, stopping flakes after a definite time period, adding custom images and more.
Snow Storm displays white snow flakes falling from the top-left side down to the bottom-right side of your WordPress blog, which creates a stormy effect.
With WP Snow Effect, the dropping snow flakes fade or dissolve before before reaching in the middle of the blog page, and keeps the content readable and uninterrupted. Both of these plugins provides no options and settings page.
