It’s 43 degrees outside, which is I think as cold as it gets in San Francisco. But there’s no reason we can’t turn down the thermometer here on WordPress.com.
That’s right, the snow is back!
Last year we were a little tardy with adding it so to make up we’re giving you almost a full month of snowy goodness.
How to make it
- Go to your dashboard.
- Navigate to Appearance -> Extras.
- Check the box next to “Show falling snow on this blog.”
- Roast some chestnuts.
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
but this blog is sooo delightful
Until the internet gets slow,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Those of you who turned on snow on last year will get it automatically. If you want to turn it off just do the steps above but uncheck the box.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Awesome! Normally something we webmasters steer away from, but on a blog this adds a really nice touch. Thanks for the add in!
Yay! I love the snow, or at least I love it when it’s on my WordPress page. Not so much when it’s covering my front lawn…Yay again!
43 degrees in F or C?
So happy to have the snow falling! I had forgotten all about it from last year, and it was such a sweet surprise. THANKS!
SNOW! WordPress is A.W.E.S.O.M.E.!!!
Haha, awesome seeing as I have a black background. Awesome. Nice job!!
And here I was thinking you were talking about -43 C, like it sometimes gets here in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Merry Christmas, and I love the snow! It gives my blog a Christmasy theme!
Will there be rain and leaves falling during the other seasons as well?
Awesome. Thanks! I saw the one last year! :D
43 degrees? Are you not on fire?
Oh, I guess you mean Fahrenheit. Silly me.
Wow. This is neat! It is the wave of the blogging future. Who knew you could have weather on the Internet?
i recently read about this snow effect on bloggerbuster. I was wondering when i would be able to add it on wordpress. Now its here. Seems like nowadays with wordpress, wytiwyg..what you think is what you get. :-)
oh right! I was just looking for this again 2 days ago. I’m glad it’s back again. Thanks!
Living in Georgia, we occasionally get snow. It never ceases to amaze me how exciting it is for us. The funniest thing is how the grocery stores run out of bread and milk and the other essentials since people act like they are going to die. LOL
Anyway, thanks for adding the snow effects. I’ll enjoy them each time I log on to WordPress. :-)
Considering that I live in the middle of the desert, this is absolutely cool! Got the snow on my blog. Thank you so much :)
love it! thanks!
Yay! Now to annoy people with virtual snow!
It’s 28 degrees here and snowing for real. Too cold for me. Thanks for the cool effect. I will go add it to my blog! :-)
What a nice surprise this morning. Thanks.
What do we have to do to turn off snow on other people’s blogs?
Thank you for the SNOW again – I love it!
What a wonderful surprise to wake up this morning and find that it’s snowing in the Black Rock Desert–on my blog!!
Yay for the snow!! It’s back!
And very refreshing–it’s hot here along the coast in soCal and yesterday we had Santa Ana winds again!
(The snow was more fun on my black background theme form last year–but Sapphire is much easier to read and the snow looks great on the deep blue edges of my blog…Lorelle said it slows things down so she turned it back off last year. Everything’s moving fast–maybe that’s thanks to the new dashboard and 2.7 I wonder…)
Thank you but my snow is little squares instead of flakes. What do I do about my “abstract” snow?”
Thankss!! This is really awshum. Much appreciated~
How cool..!! Thank you..!
I love it!!! I wish there were leaves in spring and fall, rain in summer. I can’t even tell you how happy the snow makes me.
GREAT! I was looking for it since yesterday! x3
I love this feature. Thanks again!
¡NICE! Guys you’re amazing, snowing on my blog ¡oh yeah! Thanks a lot WordPress Group, and Happy Merry Christmas to all of you.
PD: WordPress 2.7 it’s the best, it’s so coooool :D
Thank you for the snow falling on my blog! I am 5 years old. The snow looks cool on my blog! Thank you for making my blog! I am in kindergarten. I think that everyone should have a wordpress blog.
love, Reed and Red Rex too.
(My mom aka Art Predator helped me type this and do my blog. It has a youtube video we made and other cool stuff for kids. I want to put some games on my blog.)
thank you so much wordpress…..
Last year i didn’t use this extra.
Nice work! :)
I’m in Saskatchewan. We get quite enough snow here on the frozen tundra, thanks.
But it does look cool.
Maybe I could pick a sunny theme instead?
There should be an option to have it snow on one’s blog through March, since that is actually the end of winter. That would be great!
welcome back, snow :) happy holiday
This is great. I love it! I grew up in New Jersey, but I’ve been living in Orlando, Florida, where it never snows, since 1981. Thank you and I’m sure unsuspecting readers will be somewhat surprised and puzzled at first sight. Being bald, if anyone asks, I’ll tell them I have a very bad dandruff problem.
I live in Canada – we get enough of the real stuff ;)
Sweet! This is so cool! Thanks for letting people use the snow without having to get a Custom CSS or something!
I wish I had snow where I lived, and not only on my blog XD
Thank you! I loved the snow last year; glad it’s back :D
yes! i loved this when it came out last year and i’ve been waiting for it this year. it’s so cool, thanks!
that is fun ,
I think last year it actually snowed in SF on top of Twin Peaks. Thanks for making it snow right now in North Beach!
Awesome! I didn’t think it snowed in San Fransisco. Awesome tip! Now my site has a holiday touch to it! Well I live in Fort Wayne and its been snowing nearly all day here, but not blizzards or anything. Enough to make everything white, excite kids, and make the roads bad. But seriously, if you want cold and snow come th Fort Wayne. Although, the weather in the Midwest is tricky! This past Wednesday it went up into the 40′s and all our snow melted, and then the next day its snowing again!
I forgot to add this in my last comment: No way! Your name is Matt? Me too! Not on wordpress. My wordpress is jguy365.
WHOO HOO Love It!
ps…Last year my snowman got yellow feet…;-P
Can you make the snowflakes when they get to the bottom of the blog, can you make a snowman?
How do you make blogs anyway?
amzing, thanks and happy holdays
In himalayas its snowing outside my house too.. :)
good to see similar thing on the wordpress
oh great… it’s very creative idea! i just love it… thx
I think it’s awesome. Thanks!
good stuff! thanks :)
With gas prices under $2:00/gal and snow in SF maybe we ought to get out and drive more SUVs! Woo hoo!
How do you get snow on your posts?
Nice. Thank you WordPress for the Christmas feel my blog has..
I just hope I don’t have to shovel it… lol
Up here in Utica, New York we crank up the barbie and take the cover off the pool at 43 degrees! It’s 23 degrees here and I’m out working on my tan. We are a little behind on snowfall so far this season. We have only had about two feet so far. Our record is more then two feet in a 24 hour period!
Thanks for the fake snow, since I don’t have to shovel it, I’ll be adding it to my blog!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
Wonderful, thanks a lot Matt.
