New Theme: Vermilion Christmas

We’ve got a pretty slick new holiday theme for you guys. Like Christmas lights, holiday themes are perfectly tasteful on your blog until January 2nd. (Though I’m not one to talk, my lights are up almost all year.)

Here’s a preview of the theme:

It has widget support, so you can customize the sidebar to your liking.

You may also notice we’ve put some snowflakes in the WordPress.com header above. I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season. :)

    Great theme, though like all things Christmas it needs to be packed away before the 6th of January!
    Until then it will have pride of place on my personal blog :)

    My blog is for my own ‘tales of the macabre’ but I’m using this theme for the holidays … See I hang little mummies and shrunken heads from Ye Olde Curiousity Shoppe in Seattle on my Christmas Tree so I guess you could say DO I like to get into the “spirit” of things.

    Har, har…anyway I love the colors and I really love the fonts and sidebar on the left.

    There is something funky going on with the header in IE7. It looks fine in FF, but IE is shoving the “Main Menu” part of the titlebar to the left a few pixels.

    Also, I would love to see the “Edit” link on posts moved to the same line as the categories. I know the guests can’t see it, but it’s an eyesore for admins.

    Have a great Christmas everybody!!! :) :) :)

    It’s nice … but I really wish WordPress would make more themes available that follow the philosophy of some of the older ones. Example: If we could get Unsleepable v2.0 or the new Rounded Blue that would be great. A lot of the older themes had great principle design and I find myself wanting to simply have more basic design options.

    Thanks though – you guys and gals are doing a fantastic job of adding more and more themes … I think this is the fifth one in a month … wicked!

    Cheers :)

    But actually, Christmastide doesn’t officially end until February 2, Candlemas – and you really shouldn’t put up Christmas stuff until right before the day.

    If people didn’t start so early, they wouldn’t be so eager for it to end.

    It’s a beautiful theme, but only until January 2nd?

    I must protest in the name of all bloggers of Ukrainian ancestry. Ukrainians celebrate Christmas Eve on January 6th, Christmas Day on January 7th. New Year’s for them, then follows one week later. You simply must find it acceptable to allow blogs to use the holiday themes until all our Ukrainian friends have celebrated as well.

    (I tried fellow bloggers)
