Drupal in Christmas Motives
Friday, December 23, 2016 by Matic
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year says Andy Williams in one of his songs. That's true if you ask me. The whole family gathers, eats, talks and in general enjoys spending time together, which was maybe not a common practice during the year. Families are accompanied with presents, Christmas trees, ornaments and other Christmas motives. We explored, how Drupal can conjure you the Christmas spirit.
First and the easiest way to lift up the Christmas spirit is with Drupal Icon, which is ideal for Christmas time. With it you can do a lot of things. You can, for example, use it as a Christmas ball. Self-made or not, Christmas ball in the shape of Drupal icon will easily fit around other Christmas ornaments, making your Christmas tree picturesque and reminding you, what Drupal means to you. If you have more time and will, you can transform Drupal icon into other ornaments as well. Namely, Drupal icon can be in a shape of a candle, in a shape of a hand bell, in a shape of strip for the Christmas tree, in a shape of Christmas lights etc.
From the web developer's point of view, you can virtually design your Drupal Icon. You can put a Santa Clauses hat on it, accompany it with deer and sleigh, put it on the package of presents and so on. Let your imagination have a free way!
In order to carry your Christmas atmosphere to work, you can help yourself with modules. One module is Christmas Lights. This module for Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 creates decoration of Christmas Lights for you and the users of your website. Therefore, you will be able to see Christmas lights somewhere else, not just in your city and on your three. Your website visitors will also see that you are up to date and will maybe give you a benefit for that.
Another module worth mentioning is Christmas Snow. It's available for Drupal 6 and Drupal 7. It adds a Christmas Snow effect to your site. Don't worry, the number and speed of the snowflakes can be set, so it won't distract you or your website visitors too much.
Christmas Themes and Templates
You can also celebrate the most festive time of the year with Christmas themes and templates for your Drupal website. You can decorate your website for free or you can invest and buy themes and templates online. You can even design them on your own, but if you chose not to, here is one of the lists of Christmas themes and templates, which will help you surprise your website visitors. They may be even more surprised after hearing this cool Drupal Christmas Song.
We hope you liked our ideas of how you can connect both Drupal and Christmas. But again, let your imagination have a freeway, so explore and realize your ideas as well. We are sure you have plenty of them. But if you would like to forget about Drupal just for that short period of time then that is fine as well. At this point we, AGILEDROP, wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
