Christmas is round the corner and the whole world is going gaga over it. You probably have started buying Santa Clause dress, beard, shoe, bag, emblems, gifts, Christmas tree, bells and whistles, and other decorative items. This indeed is exciting, but what about your blog? Have you started shopping for it? Or are you going to leave it as blunt and boring as it was left the last year? In this article, I will tell you how to decorate your WordPress blog for Christmas for FREE.

There are four things to a blog decoration: Theme change, Header decoration, background and icons, and footer decoration.

Theme Change

There are many Christmas-based themes that will help you add Christmas flavor to your WordPress blog. You can use any of them for a day or two during the Christmas to tell the world that you are in the zone. My three favorite Christmas themes are:

WordPress has two special plugin to jazz up your Christmas decoration of WordPress blogs. One is Let It Snow!, and another is Snow, balloons and more.

Let It Snow!

You can make your blog more exciting by allowing the snowflake follow the mouse movement, and deposit itself at the bottom of the screen (browser). The plugin will give you the desired effect without slowing down the load time or eating up your blog’s resources.
