Here’s a little introduction from the plugin’s page:
It’s the time of the year. Why not dress up your WordPress blog with some fancy falling snow flakes? Let It Snow is a WordPress plugin I wrote back in 2007, just before Christmas and it is currently one of the more popular plugins in the WordPress plugin directory. Since Christmas is coming, I thought I should just give this plugin a little refresh and move it to the COMA blog from where it originally was, on the Widgeo.us blog. I am no longer working at Widgeo.us and since this was initially a little pet project of mine anyway, I should just house it somewhere close.
Installing the Let It Snow! is easy and simple. Just download the zip file, extract and upload it to your wp-content/plugins directory. Next, activate it via the Plugins menu in your WordPress dashboard. In this new version, you can customize the snowfall via the Let It Snow! settings page.

Options include choosing whether the snow should stick to the bottom of the window or should the snow follow mouse movement. You can adjust the settings according to your own preference. Just enter a value/pick an option and click on Save Changes.
So there you go! Now you guys know how I made the falling snow effect here on JaypeeOnline. Now you can also have it on your WordPress-powered blog and install it now or for next Christmas. Btw, this plugin works best if your blog has a dark background or else, the snow would be invisible or hard to see on a light background. Thanks to Aen Tan, we can always have a white Christmas on our blogs every year!
