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!
That’s right, it’s that special time of year where you can show off your holiday cheer with a little special blog flair — falling snow. To get it started:
- Go to your dashboard.
- Navigate to Settings » General.
- Check the box next to “Show falling snow on this blog.”
- Roast some chestnuts.
Even Texas boys like me who only saw snow a handful of times growing up can enjoy it all month long, until we turn it off on January 4th.

Thank you for the snow! I love it!
I changed my header photo to a winter scene. The snow is fitting! Thanks for the cool option!
Love it! Great feature for the season.
Yay! I love the snow. It doesn’t snow much where I live either. So happy it’s back!
Well, I don’t know yet whether I’ll welcome snow to my blog, especially because it’s on it’s way outside, for real, but I do know this. I’m definitely going to follow YOUR blog, snow or no snow. You, sir, are FUNNY!
Poetry is great for all humankind
thx men Merry Christmas all
So beautiful, thanks Matt…its beginning to look alot like Christmas…
Thank you so much! This “function” really makes our blog more lively!! I loveeeeeeee it so much! Thanks thanks and thanks :D
Magical! Snow looks great on my blog.
I’m with Pete. It’s summer in Brisbane, 30 deg centigrade, and I imagine quite a few WordPress bloggers get a bit weary of the automatic assumption that we all live in the same part of the world.
snow is back!
Love the snow!
It will be warm more and more with love and care when the Christmas come!!!
Amazing…love how it looks!!!! thanks :)
Thanks so much Matt. I love the snow. I changed my background to green, which I just discovered I could do, and it looks extremely festive.
Love it! Thank you!
We had some snow here.
More is coming.
A bit colder
A merry christmas.
It would be cool if it worked in Mobile.
Just added the snow…i love it!
Thanks for the heads up! I love making things festive!! :D
yeah it’s cold out there.
And in Australia, where it’s just gone summer, we’re left out in the cold! ;-)
Haven’t tried out the snow thing, but I love the idea. (I’ll try it in the morning) Thank you!
I’ll admit that I’m easily amused, but I LOVE this! Thank you!!! :)
Ha. Scratch that, I just activated it; super cute!
I LOVE this!
Thank you thank you thank you! This is the only snow a Louisiana girl can get!!! :)
Very nice!! I liked poems like that!!
Love it! Thanks for the nice article and the snow feature!
Um… it’s summer here. Our Christmas is beach, bbq and sun.
I’m in Australia too, but I still think it’s Grinchy to complain. With the joys of the world wide interwebs, we get to enjoy blogging on a site that is hosted in a hemisphere where it’s winter. That’s okay with me if they want to add novelty to the process!
Holiday is coming! Can’t wait :D
Welcome to the world , ;-)
It’s way too cool in my office right now…..what are those white things falling across my screen??? Thanks, Matt! Myra Smith
I’m Vietnamese, I haven’t seen snow before but I like it……
Yes! WordPress you are my hero.
Thanks for posting the Frank Sinatra version. His version is by far the best of this song.
Really nice touch to our posts!
Well I have never experienced a snow.. In my country snow is not a common.. but fog is.. I must be missing a very interesting moment.. I hope someday I will get chance to experience snow.
Living in Houston, Texas, means this may be the only snow fall I see this winter.
It’s cool :D
Yeah, the snow effect is coming again, cool!!!
You made me smile! Thanks for the snow! :)
It is freezing here in Jordan
Even Texas ‘Men’ like me? :)
Oh, yeah, that! I so love this feature.
So is this only for sites hosted by WordPress.com or is it also for self hosted sites that use WordPress.org? The last couple messages I’ve got about updates that were supposed to happen automatically actually never happened and it’s getting a bit disappointing.
Reblogged this on xynahamante.
Hi, I live in South Africa where snow falls in certain regions more regularly than where we live. We are about 65km east of Johannesburg. We occasionally see snow or sleet. Being winter in the northern Hemisphere, I will add snow to my blog for the people up north.
Personally, I like the summer and autumn seasons best for their beauty and colours.
Thanks Matt for that falling snow–fun for the holiday season!
Fabulous! Again, I am so not regretting leaving FB for this site. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
I like it. Does look like snow. But, also, because of my header for TimeVoyager1, it also looks like traveling through space – stars passing by at warp drive speed – instead of snowflakes. So there you have it, Matt… design a star field in motion for a space header and/or background. Beam me up when ready – hopefully before the snow gets too deep! I’m in Oklahoma.
It’s so cute! I think it kind of works with our blog, given its black-and-gray scheme and austere look.
Thank you for making the default “no snow,” and allowing users to choose to display it or not. At least with this snow, we don’t have to shovel the sidewalk or driveway or spend an hour brushing it off the car, wherever it might be. :)
I love the snow application on our website! Its just in time for the seasons. ;)
It would be cool if you add option to change speed of snow falling and number of dots per screen.
ooh i love this! i may just have to check it out ~ thanks so much for the christmas cheer!!
xx ~ kristina
Uuuuuh, I’ve been waiting for this – love it! Many thanks!
