    What does everyone here do to customize their desktop look for Christmas? I personally have a small folder of desktops and then run MacLampsX (like the old Holiday Lights) and a snow screensaver (not sure if the ones I've used before work in Mountain Lion, as I haven't checked yet).

    Any other ideas?

    As I mentioned, MacLampsX works, although the screensaver does not. LotsaSnow works as a screensaver, though. No others I'm familiar with, though.

    Christmas theme thread! :D

    Ok, before I begin I'd just like to say I am not big on tacky christmas themes. I prefer a simple touch of the season on my workstation. So I had this awesome idea around 3:00 this morning to put a santa hat on the Finder! After about an hour of searching for the perfect hat, I used pixelmator to make the edits. So I wanted to share with you the outcome, and feel free to post your own interface changes.

    Thanks, you just change the file finder.png with your own in System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Content/Resources. Remember to right click Dock.app "Show Package Contents" then navigate to the resources folder.

    Oops, sorry! :)

    I love these kinds of apps :D . I prefer the dashboard lights widget made by interdimension media but is it's stuck in the Dashboard.
