Review: Desktop Christmas Snow produces gently falling snow in the background

Let the charm of gently falling snow keep you in the holiday spirit all day long.

Desktop Christmas Snow adds an enchanting element to your computer by producing images of tiny snowflakes falling in the background. The flakes are hardly more than tiny dots on the screen, but they fall in a pattern just like that of gently falling snow, and the app perfectly creates the feeling of the holidays or winter time without being a distraction to you as you work.

This application is as straightforward to install as it is to run. All you have to do is open the downloaded file and the snow magically begins to fall. There is nothing fancy about this app, but it does just what it was designed to do. To stop the snow from falling, just click on the snowflake icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and select "Quit."

The app does automatically set the snow to start falling again every time you open windows, but you can turn this off by deselecting that option in the snowflake menu, as well. If you're looking for a low-key way to get into the holiday spirit, Desktop Christmas Snow is definitely worth a try.
