Mark Chew's Windows 7 Christmas Theme: Alternative to Holiday Lights Theme
Article by George Norman
On 17 Dec 2010
If you want to decorate your Windows 7-powered PC and get into a festive, winter holidays mood, you can get the Microsoft-offered Holiday Lights theme. This theme, a collection of 17 top quality images that feature Christmas lights and Christmas trees and various decorations, has been around since late November; it is available for download on the Windows 7 Personalization Gallery, which is home to numerous other Windows 7 themes.

You could also use the Snow Angels theme, which is also offered by Microsoft and is available for download on the Windows 7 Personalization Gallery.

There’s an alternative theme you could use, one that doesn’t have Microsoft written all over it. I am talking about Mark Chew’s Windows 7 Christmas Theme. Just like the Holiday Lights theme, it is a collection of Christmassy images – you know, Christmas lights, Christmas decorations, and other things of the sort. There are a grand total of 11 images in the screensaver – check out four of them in the preview presented below.

The nice thing about the Windows 7 Christmas Theme is that it isn’t just a collection of Christmassy images. Alongside the 11 HD Christmassy wallpapers the theme includes 5 desktop icons and a mouse cursor. This way you can completely decorate your desktop for the winter holidays.

Would have been nice if the theme also included some sound effects, perhaps some jingling bells when you turn off the computer, or some cheery ho ho hos when the computer boots up. Still, we can’t be too picky with a theme that’s this good looking and is offered free of charge. I’m just saying though – would have been nice.

To try out this theme you need only download this ZIP file, unzip it, and double click the .theme file. In no time at your desktop will be transformed. Check out the preview below to see a few of the wallpapers you’ll se once you install the theme.



Getting back to the Holiday Lights theme, you can download it here; check out a preview below.





And getting back to Snow Angels as well, you can download the theme here; check out a preview below.



If you would like to get other themes for Windows 7, visit the Personalization Gallery here. At the time of writing this the gallery is home to more than 100 Windows 7 themes and about 80 desktop wallpapers.
