I’ve seen my fair share of snow growing up in northern Michigan. The sun was shining today, but there is a good chance we’ll have snow on the ground by the end of the week. My favorite things about snow have always been making snowmen, building snow forts, and having snowball fights.
To make it snow on your blog:
- Go to your dashboard.
- Navigate to Appearance -> Extras.
- Check the box next to “Show falling snow on this blog.”
If you used snow last year it is automatically turned back on. If you want to turn it off, follow the steps above but uncheck the box.
Older computers may run slow or stop responding due to snow. Use the following links if you run into a problem (the options below only affect your user account):

love the snow! 1000x better than real snow – you don’t have to dig your car out of it!
Thank you very much for adding again this effect it snows. I am charmed with it, already install it.
It’s finally that time of year!
it won’t slow the load time down?
hahha…what will you think up next ?? Good idea for the season :) please bring out some more sesonal stuff like this, please
I love it! Thank you!
Now I’ll be cold inside home also, hahaha!
Let’s tray the anticipate Christmas.
Thanks guys. At least I’ve
virtually touched the snow from a hot tropical country!
Happy holidays to ya’ll :)
this ones so bad! i love it thanks for the snow i really love it. it’s so adorable
Has not snowed in my city yet, but at least I can make my blog snow now, lols. Thanks!
Love love love this! My favourite kind of snow: pretend!
I thought I was crazy when I first logged in lol.
I totally LOVE the snow :) And so do my readers!
Hurrah, great! :) :)
Make it a permanent feature please!
i love it… it never snowed here in the philippines before…
I wish there was some way to enable the snow in one click for all my 12 blogs! If possible leave the option in dashboard permanently sot that those who want it can have it always during Dec-Jan automatically when it is activated by WP. Thanks.
I was looking for a way to decorate the blog for Christmas – thank you!
yay thank you love this! my third season snowy holiday blog at WordPress!
love the snow!! :)
Thanks for bringing the snow back again :)
Ha. That’s sweet. Thanks WordPress.
Can we make custom objects fly around the screen? Such as a plan or a car…
The snow is back! Thanks a lot WordPress!
Siempre he gustado de la Nieve…y de la Navidad!
Esta nieve es estupenda para mi vision,
con un efecto de caida muy bueno
Suerte y Gracias…!
Bravo! I like, always. of the Snow… and the Christmas!
This fresh Snow is beautiful for the vision, with a very good fall effect
Chao and Thank you!!
thank you ! love the effects :)
Nice idea! Thank you!
Thanks! Merry Christmas too!
Thank you…I missed it…whole year…Why don’t you offer it for whole year & for free :)???
It’s so cute! I’d add it, but it wouldn’t make very much sense, as it is Summer here in Australia… Oh well, I can admire it on other pages!
This is just lovely. Thank you for adding this. Great fun!
The snow is back thank you! Why don’t you leave the snow button permanently to extras? Because I’m going to ask for it and use it every year from here to eternity. Why is the snow so controlled?
So glad to have the snow back! I was hoping that it would be here…though I was doubtful when I didn’t see it on the first of the month. Thanks!!
Wonderful Thank you very much, I missed it, too. 8)
Yay, my third snowy WordPress Christmas! Thank you.
Excellent! WP.com remembered my “opt-out” choice from last year. Even with a 2.80GHz processor, things got v e r y, v e r y s l o o o w, sort of like my old beater after an overnight snowfall in MInnesota!
A find it twee and rather annoying.
This is great! I’d love to have the option to have it all through winter :)
Remeber this from last year. One of my reasons to shift immediately to wordpress. Thank you! :)
Nice idea! Thank you! Merry Christmas!!!
I have snow, but how to make an avatar and translate in Dutch
Lovely, I’ve turned it on. We need a hot summer theme though – I’m from Australia. No snow here. Maybe holly?
As an ex pat living in the Far East — I’ll take it! Love snow! Happy Holidays!
Just recently I came across wp blog entry that described the same option dating back to 2007. Nice to have it back. :)
The snow is back again. :) Nice effect, thanks!
Nice and beuty thank u
Thanks a lot! Merry Christmas to the WordPress team!
It’s snowing in my web site now! But I miss real snow as well…
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!! That is too cool!!! No pun intended :)
My first snow year and I LOVE it! Thanks, WordPress, and happy holidays!
Thank you very much!

I could see the snow on the home page when I logged in! This is awesome. I’m turning it on for my blog :D
Ui, super! Vielen Dank!
Gefällt mir total gut!
Thank you verny much!
So I logged in and my Dashboard came up and I thought I could see these little floaties…
I got my assistant to confirm I wasn’t hallucinating or needing a run to the eyedoctor.
Funny now that I think of it,
Thanks for ‘personalizing’ your deliverable.
So thoughtful of you! I like snow. Thanks.
Thanks! And ¡ Feliz Navidad a vosotros también!
Thank you! I was just thinking of the snow effect and how to turn it back on :)
Thanks for the snow!!! Love it…
Thanks WordPress. It looks great on my black backrground. I love it because it literally falls the length of my blog instead of cutting off like some animations do.
That’s skill :)
Thanks, Happy holidays!!!
Love it. Adds a little extra something to the blog. It’s great!
Thanks for the free snow, it makes it feel like Christmastime. :-)
The snow is a wonderful feature, I could hardly wait :)
Many thanks again this year!
What a wonderful idea! Just the thing my winterbanner needed. Thank You and Seasons Greetings to the whole WordPress-team!
Thank you very much for this application!
Nice idea! Thank you very much
How can I export the snowscript and snowflakes to other webpages?
ooooooo! who knew the first snow of the season would be from WordPress? LOVE IT!
can’t wait to snatch some blog update time and turn on my own snow machine. you guys are awesome!
3 cheers to you for building happy!
I look forward to using this all year round – I’m a sucker for snow. Thanks WordPress.

The snow idea is great although it would be nice to just have it in the blog header.
That’s not a bad point. Last year I got a few complaints that it made text hard to read. Let’s see what this year brings!
Love it, what a nice surprise this morning…
How nice! Thank you so much. Living in sunny Southern California, snow isn’t part of a typical winter for me. It’s nice to have it on my blog though, adds a little something to my downtown LA header. :)
yay its gona snow
Love this idea, it’s the kind of thing that shouldn’t make a idfference, but is some how better than more material bonuses.
Some more of these would be great. How’s about the option to have ticket tape or confetty on your blog all year round.
I grew up in northern Michigan too! Gaylord! Was up there for the Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed the snow. Thanks for the great feature on the blog!
Especially since it probably wont snow here in Athens Greece–Just want to say I Loved the snowflakes–put me right in the mood for December–thanks!
