Monday, the 17th of March, is St. Patrick’s Day. It is a joyous occasion that needs to be celebrated: parades, green beer, and cool themes for your Windows desktop.

Below are three nice themes that you could use to decorate your Windows desktop in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

St. Patrick’s Day is the patron saint of Ireland – everyone knows that. So what better way to decorate your Windows desktop than with a theme that focuses on Ireland? The Ireland theme features green landscapes, mysterious rock formations, gorgeous seaside cliffs, and a sound scheme based on traditional Celtic music.

Leprechauns are a big part of Irish folklore. They are known for their mischief, green costumes, and for their gold. According to Irish folklore, leprechauns keep their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. And so, I introduce the Rainbows theme. It features stunning landscapes from all over the world.

You can’t think of leprechauns and rainbows and not think about shamrocks. Shamrocks are the central part of the appropriately named Shamrocks theme.

There you have it. A theme that presents beautiful landscapes from the Emerald Isle, a theme that presents rainbows, and a theme that presents shamrocks. You can get all three for free from the Windows Personalization Gallery.

If you are not familiar with the Windows Personalization Gallery, then I must tell you that it is a site that has more than 100 themes to offer to Windows 7 and Windows 8 users. The themes are offered free of charge for Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1. The site also offers desktop backgrounds and language packs.
