Now that Thanksgiving Day is past everyone is focused on the holidays inone way or another. People begin decorating their houses inside and out.So many decorations at stores that it feels like you've landed at theNorth Pole when you go in. You find the malls and stores are packed withpeople looking for gifts and bargains. In fact it won't be long beforemy elves, Melaina, Kadee, Cahlia, Braddock, and Zaiden, will be outshopping for Mrs. File Finder.

It seems everyone gets into the holiday spirit, even programmers. That'sright, you'll find some great programs to help you get into the holidayspirit. To help you out I'm going to point out a few holiday programsthat might be of interest. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Holiday LightsDesigner is an interesting program that helps you plan out just howyou'll put Christmas lights on your house. The program comes with a goodnumber of light types and colors you can use. Just put a picture of thebuilding you want to decorate in the program and you can experiment withdifferent combinations while you're not standing on a ladder.

To really get into the holiday spirit while you're on your computer youhave to try Holiday Lights! This is a program I've used every year since itcame out.

Holiday Lights lets you put Christmas lights all around yourscreen. You can pick the colors, the shapes, and more. On top of thatyou can have it play holiday music in the background. Really helps toget you in the Christmas spirit. You can also use it for other holidays.

To better reflect your holiday mood you should look at A Blessed Christmas,Stationery Collection. It's a neat collection of holiday prints thatyou can add as backgrounds to your email. Shows everyone you're notMr. Scrooge and gets them in the holiday mood as well.

To further get you in the Christmas spirit you might want to considerusing a Christmas theme on your computer. Once again we have agood number here on Tucows and I'll list just a few of myfavorites for you.

I've found that decorating my computer during the holidays helpsput me and everyone else in a holiday mood. It's nice to walk by myoffice at night and hear Christmas songs playing on the computer. I findmyself singing along with the melodies during the day as I work. Whetheryou work all day on a computer like me or just use one occasionally,have some fun during the holidays. Put in a holiday theme, decorate withsome holiday lights, and get yourself ready for a Merry Christmas!
