Christmas does not only leave its mark on our homes and streets, but also on our personal belongings. Naturally, it is also possible to add zest to your computer with Christmas-themed screensavers, games, and music. In allthingschristmas.com, we have a variety of Christmas downloads, among them are midi-files of the most popular Christmas melodies, and games for children in our Christmas for Kids-section.
We have gathered so many Christmas downloads in our site to help you get into the Christmas spirit even while you work.

From a cultural historical perspective, we see that a new chapter was added to the history of Christmas decorations when the computer and Internet emerged, because wherever we move about, we like to put our personal marks on things. We have been posting copies of our surroundings on our computer screens for some time now – just to feel the spirit of Christmas. This practice caused the creation of digital Christmas decorations.
By using Christmas downloads, you can decorate your computer as nicely as the home or office during the Christmas season. What about a Christmas candle with a countdown on the right side of the screen or maybe a screensaver which shows a snow-covered Christmas landscape? The possibilities are endless.
We also have a series of small JAVA programs as Christmas downloads, which can be played directly on your screen. This way, you and your children can enjoy yourself with games while waiting for Christmas Eve. Go to our Christmas for Kids-section.
Did you know that…
Lots of digital Christmas decorations are made of so-called GIF animations. The GIF format was introduced for the first time in 1987.
The word, “screensaver”, was used for the first time in 1983. It consisted of a small program which made the screen change color. A stationary picture could damage the screen. Today, screensavers are used as decorations, for example, in the form of beautiful Christmas pictures.
JAVA programs, which are used for many small Christmas games, were invented in 1991. The program’s mascot is a red-nosed penguin.
