    Christmas Wallpapers

    Hi guys,

    This relates to a recent post by someone else, but i decided to make a new post as I didn’t want to change the subject on the other. Well anyway...

    Every user has a wallpaper of some kind, this Christmas me and another technician would like to make a Christmas wallpaper to get everyone in the festive spirit!

    We need some inspiration so if you could show us what you have or leave some comments it would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Here you go. I spent ages getting the snow effect right :?

    If you look carefully you can see the snowman in the background.

    Re: Christmas Wallpapers

    You have to be careful these days. I was going put up a Christmas tree or mistletoe toe saying happy winter solstice. But I figure some someone would get upset not knowing they are parts of Christmas are pagan.

    Might do something more subtle like a mushroom in a forest covered in snow. Hopefully that will not upset anyone.

    Using a HTML page as a desktop with falling know and other animations works well.

    Re: Christmas Wallpapers

    Adding some snow to your existing wallpaper is probably the best bet as it is not religion specific and is unlikely to upset anyone.

    Re: Christmas Wallpapers

    Yeah, add some snow to whatever you already have. You want to avoid making it a "Christmas" wallpaper as this is a religious theme and therefore could be considered un-pc to advertise on religion and not any others (stupid I know, but what can you do?) and instead just make it a winter-holiday-festival-themed background.

    I know at our school we were not allowed to celebrate Halloween as it was a pagan festival - not even a pumpkin screensaver!

    Re: Christmas Wallpapers

    You dont want to be putting the word 'christmas' on a computer screen as this is surely blasphemous and could result in you getting 40 lashes!

    Re: Christmas Wallpapers

    Last year the head where I was in the Christmas assembly (in the local church) put the point across that it was CHRISTmas, and not "Winter Shopping Festival", and that people should remember that.
    It's a standard LEA school and the only church affiliation they have is a Christian Union.
    Also, my Hindu mate and his family celebrate Christmas, and my Muslim mate and his family celebrate Christmas - so to hell with this political correct-ness nonsense and set the desktop to be a nativity scene!
