Desktop Christmas Cheer

If your looking for widgets for your desktop, I found a free site that has interesting little things that you can download. The fireplace is particularly good. The fire is very realistic, not cartoonish, and it has a strip of lights across the top that flash.

Also, the Christmas trees are excellent, but they're kind of busy. There's lots of them, though. I put a strip of lights across the top of my screen. I'll leave them there unless I feel that my desktop is too busy. All these things stay on top no matter what. If you want to delete them, click on "exit" and they'll be gone from the desktop. I didn't find a panel to adjust the lights at the top.

These are zip files and seem to be old, but they appear harmless. I am running Windows 10, and they work. Use at your own peril; I didn't make these. The fireplace is advertised all over the net. All the references refer back to this one site: http://get-xmas.com.

I just thought that someone might want this for their desktop. Doesn't hurt to tell you. The fireplace is much better than it looks. All this stuff opens in the lower right corner, but then you can move them. The garland opens at the top, and does not move.
