It’s Christmas time once again and it’s time to decorate the house and your desktop! Find some neat and cool Christmas & holiday wallpaper and Christmas wallpaper desktops in this article.
Time to Dress Your Desktop with Christmas Wallpapers
It’s Christmas time! It’s time to add a Christmas holiday wallpaper or decoration to your desktop, to keep the spirit of Christmas even if you are stuck at your computer or if you’re working at home. There are plenty of Christmas wallpapers, or graphics, to add as Christmas wallpaper or desktop backgrounds, but below are some of the best Christmas/Holiday wallpapers to consider!
Windows 7, Vista and XP users who love to customize their desktop background or theme are probably already busy finding new Christmas & holiday wallpaper, but they should remember to be careful when downloading anything, because some contain spyware, adware or other types of malware. This is possible if you are downloading an executable file that should put decors on your desktop.
Animated Fireplace with Christmas Stockings
This is my favorite Christmas wallpaper because it has a warm Christmas spirit, thanks to the animated fireplace and candles with Christmas stockings. The smoke from the fireplace is also animated. However, it is not free to use. You need to have a registered license of DeskScapes from Stardock.com’s WinCustomize website (software price is $19.95 only). If you are using DeskScapes, you already know that there are thousands of wallpapers to choose from.

This white Christmas wallpaper represents purity and can also describe pure love on Christmas! The image at the left is another neat Christmas holiday wallpaper to use. Reindeer and snow with Christmas tree in the wild? What more could you want? You can have this Christmas wallpaper for Windows 7, Vista or XP for free from http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/wallpapers/42682/.
Simply save the compressed file on your desktop and extract the content. You’ll find 3 screen resolutions to use as your Christmas wallpaper: 1280×1024, 1600×1200 or 1920×1080.
Decorate Your Desktop with an Animated Christmas Tree!
If you rather keep your current desktop background e.g. family photo or pictures of your own, you may still dress your Windows 7, Vista or XP OS with Christmas decorations. One example is an animated Christmas tree for Windows. The image at the left is an example of a Christmas tree that is actually animated when you install it on your computer.
You can add more or several other types of Christmas trees if you wish. It’s available for free from http://get-xmas.com/. At the right, you’ll see the screenshot of Christmas trees decorating my Windows 7 desktop. Available options include adjusting the transparency, adding another tree, keeping it on top and automatically loading it during the Windows startup. Another option lets you drag it anywhere on your desktop to change the location of the Christmas tree.
Windows Desktop Christmas Themes from Microsoft?
Unfortunately, there are not many choices for holiday wallpaper at the Microsoft website. I only found two Christmas & holiday wallapapers to use for Windows 7 and they’re called Czech Winter and Twinkle Wish.
