If you have a WordPress website, then you probably know how easy WordPress makes it to add things to it. Why not take advantage of that feature, and add some holiday flair to your website during this season? Well I got 2 super easy things for you to add now to spice up your site!

Have it Snow on Your WordPress Site
Let it snow on your WordPress site! With this plugin, you can easily add the snow of various sizes and shapes. It also allows you to change the size, speed, transparency, etc. of the snow.

Different shades of these big snow flakes can help “winterize” your website!
Depending on your website design, the above plugins might not work well, but there are many more available in WordPress plugin area (https://wordpress.org/plugins/) that you can experiment with. (As usual, make sure to do your own due diligence before using any plugin to ensure the compatibility with your website, etc.)
So have fun! Play around with these 2 plugins and let me know what you think!
Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and a very Happy New Year!
