Christmas Snow

XMOD Christmas Snow

A free module that adds a snowfall effect to the front page. Once installed you can adjust parameters and switch the snow on and off using a simple checkbox.

How it Works

A small javascript file is invoked which creates a snow effect using the asterisk character in a variety of sizes, light colours and fonts. The snowfall script stand alone and is not dependant upon any libraries such as jquery etc.

Simply turn snow on or off using the "Snowflakes Active" checkbox in the module settings. Additional setting are available to configure quantity speed and size. Which settings suit your shopping site is a matter of taste, play with the settings and see.
