  1. Hi Babanature,

    The perfect post that everyone would love to have this Christmas and holiday season 🙂

    Yes, one’s heard of most of these plugins, with the snowfall being the most common one that most people use on their blogs to have the real effect of this holiday season. I think a combination of these would surely make your blog so festive and nice. Let me see which ones I’d try out for the coming season.

    Thanks for sharing these with us. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

  2. Wow! . Nice Plugins. I never knew there was anything like ‘Xmas Plugin’ . I Really like that holiday message plugin but i cant use it because its outdated. 🙁 Thanks For Sharing 🙂

    1. Hello Kelvin,
      Which of the holiday message is outdated? None of the plugin in this list are outdated. They are all still being maintained by their developers.
      Thanks for the comment and do have a good week ahead…

    1. Hey Pramod,
      Yeah… I did saw a blogger using a snow effect on her blog, so it inspired me to right a post about it for bloggers who’s not aware of such plugins :).

      Thanks liking the post dear friend. Do have a faithful week ahead…

  5. I didn’t use those you mentioned but I use this plugin (hasn’t been updated in over 2 years and still work He – He – He) with the Xmas Theme form If I remember correct I ot the theme from smashingmagazine.

    I’m more than satisfied, you should make a top 5 best themes for Christmas when you have time Babanature(in case you didn’t)!

    See you next time buddy, kind regards!

    1. Hello Daniel,
      Ah, yes… I wanted to add that plugin to the list but since it was outdated, i did not add it :). But it is good to know that it is still working fine.
      Ahhh… that’s a brilliant idea most people would love that.
      Thanks for the comment dear friend and do have a good week ahead…

  6. Wonderful! I’ve already tried WP snowfall which is really awesome cool plugin. And the rest of plugin are also cool which is essential to celebrate Christmas in our won blog.


  7. Great list, Babanature 🙂

    I won’t be launching my blog until New Year’s (well, I will be launching the countdown soon), so I don’t particularly have a chance to try these plugins (I suppose I could try them on for my countdown page).

    I have seen a snowball effect – particularly on forums (Frankly, I have had a bad experience with it. It seemed to slow sites down). I suppose that isn’t the case with WordPress – Adrienne is using it and her site seems to load fine.

    Anyways, thank you for sharing these plugins, Babanature 🙂 Appreciate it!

    1. Hello Jeevan,
      It’s good to know that you’ll be launching your blog by next year. O boy, i am sure you are more than prepare to take the blogging world by storm :).
      Many blog’s around are using most of the mentioned plugins and it is good to make more bloggers know about these plugins right?
      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your wonderful comment. Do have a blessed week ahead…

  8. These five plug-ins are good and no doubt helpful if you will use this to make your blogging page in a holiday look. It will look more attractive that way. I will take note of this, I must say and share with others. Nice share! Thanks for this!

    I found this post shared on, the Internet marketing social news site, and I “kingged” it and left this comment.

  9. I’ll be honest in that I did not know that these plugins existed (shame on me). After checking them out, there is no doubt that Holiday Message is great!

    1. Hello Amiti,
      Trust me, many don’t know that such plugins existed :). It is good to always learn new things right?
      Thanks for your lovely comment and do have a wonderful week ahead

    1. Hey Samir,
      Really? I tried it on my other blog and tested the speed. It is a light weight plugin. :).

      Thanks for letting us know that you have tried the Snowball plugin.
      Thanks again for the comment and do have a wonderful week

  10. Hey babanature
    Great christmas plugins list I have tried WP Snowfall which really cool and adding now will really looks cool as Christmas season started but not seen on yours bro so what you have planned to show up with your blog for readers

    1. Hey Shameem,
      It is good to know that you have added the WP Snowfall on your blog.
      I have added three of those plugins to some of my blogs and i will be adding either one or two on this blog anytime soon :).
      Thanks for the comment and for stopping by. Do have a good week

  11. If I’m not mistaken, you won’t need to use any of these plugins if you’re using Jetpack since it’ll temporarily add the “snow fall” feature to your site. You can enable it from settings page.

  12. I’ll put it into consideration, I’m a speed guru and if it slows down my blog i might have to uninstall it 😉

    PS. Comment luv seem not to be working

    1. Hey Gilbert,
      For real, these plugins don’t take up bandwidth so i am sure they won’t be problem 🙂
      The commentluv is working perfectly at my end. But i have purge my cache so it should work at your end as well.

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have yourself a wonderful weekend…

  13. in this christmas i have plan to decorate my wordpress blog with christmas themes. Thanks god i found this posting. My favorite is Xmas light. I have installed this. Thanks for share this great posting. God bless you

    1. Hello Badan,
      Hmmm… I haven’t tried any WordPress Christmas theme before but from the look of things, it sounds awesome :).
      The xmas light plugin is awesome and you can see it on this blog.
      Thanks for your stopping by and do have a great week ahead…

  14. Thanks babanature for sharing this list of plugins! As always, you have again shared something useful. I have seen blogs with snow fall effect. And now I too can have a similar blog. Excited to test this effec on my blog and see how it looks! 🙂

    1. Most welcome Misz,
      Now you have finally seen the link to the snow ball effect and do hope you will apply it as well to set your blog for the season 🙂
      Thanks for the comment and you too have a good holiday and a blessed New year

  15. Hey Babanature,

    Great way to celebrate the Christmas season. Too bad I came on here too late, but I’ll know better for next year. These are a some great tools to take note of. Makes me wonder if there are other seasonal plugins like this? If so this would be a great way to get your readers into the spirit! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hello Sherman,
      Yeah, there is nothing like being in the spirit and putting your readers as well to it :).
      There are seasonal plugins for most popular seasons indeed 😉
      Thanks for the comment and do have a blessed holiday and a happy New year…

  16. Well well, it’s the Holiday season, and i see My Boss isn’t leaving his Blog out….. These plugins are really amazing for this christmas and New year season….. will try one of them….. and Oh, I saw a snow like thingy on my WP DashBoard, applied it, and I can see snow falling on my blog, same as your blog too…… 😀

    Happy New Year BabaNature!

  17. Hi Babanature,

    Thank you very much for this post. I was looking for a plugin like WP Snowfall. I am interested in the snowball effect. Is this effect something like what I am seeing now on your blog? I am seeing some little snowflakes falling from the top of your blog. Very cool effect. I love it.

    I will now take advantage of this comment to tell you something.

    Babanature, you are one of those wonderful bloggers that have made a difference in my business and online presence this year. Not only you came and read my articles and left some thoughtful comments, but also you promoted my site in one of your articles (and I won’t forget that).

    So I must say, I learned a lot from you and from your excellent blog. You are a very open, supportive, warm and friendly person. You deserve success and I am sure you will reach very high peaks in 2014.

    A Happy And Prosperous New Year

    1. Hello Silviu,
      Yeah, i am using the WP Snowfall effect on my blog and setting our blog for the season is indeed the right choice, right? 🙂

      Thank you for your kind words, it really means so much to me. Glad i met you as friend this year :).
      Let’s rock the 2014 with joy, happiness and success…

      Thanks for the wonderful comment dear friend, it really did mean much to me…
      Do have a blessed New year as well 🙂
