Getting all festive for the holidays

December 19th, 2008 · No Comments · Personal

It’s not something that a lot of people are into… yet – but while I loathe having to go outside and hang up lights for Christmas, or setting up and trimming the tree, I get much joy from decorating my various online profiles in tune with the holidays. I don’t recall exactly where this whole fad stems from for me – if it’s from me seeing someone else doing it I can’t remember who. Best I can figure it’s’s Christmas theme below that introduced me to the idea of decorating online websites.

In addition, Game Institute also is one of those sites that uses some Javascript to make “snow” fall down across the screen – although it’s hard to see because the majority of the site is white 😛 Still, they have the holly out and by chance the site is already very green, as that’s the color of the GI logo.

So far I’ve only modified my profiles for Halloween and Christmas. I do so mainly by updating my photos/avatars across the many sites (see the Social Homes sidebar) I have a profile at. Here are my images in the order of Normal, Christmas and Halloween:

Unlike all the other sites, Twitter lets me easily customize the look of my page, so I’ve put that to good use and created custom themes for each occasion as well:

I plan to capture a decent New Years picture that I can throw up for that time as well. I have some from last year but the auto-focus must have been off on my camera because they’re all just a bit blurry and grainy when you zoom in to crop just my face.

Anyone else partake in the online decorating? Share in the comments!
