DESCRIPTION (WHAT'S IT DO?)
Watch your desktop get turned into a wintery scene as snow begins
to fall and settle on top of your Windows! If you've been really
good all year, Santa may even visit your desktop to deliver some
presents. This fun, seasonal 3D screensaver will have you in the
Christmas spirit in no time with its optional countdown to Christmas
day, and over 50 different Christmas carols as background music!
Among the many different options for controlling the display and
snow, the full registered version also lets you select between
Santa Claus and Frosty the Snowman coming to visit your desktop.
If you install this and A Very 3D Christmas
Screensaver, UC3D can be set to switch between them after
a certain amount of time! Go to the screensaver Settings and try

USELESS RELEASE NOTES
I suddenly had an idea to have snow falling over the desktop. Simply enough,
and once I had it done I worked out that you can actually have the snow settle
ontop of any Windows you have displayed on the screen. When I got it going,
I was amazed at how cool it looked. I'm sure it's been done before, but I
haven't seen it myself so I was blown away. And I decided it'd make a cool
But not by itself. So I made a new Santa and got him to balance presents,
juggle and generally walk around the screen being Santa. Just to give you
something else to look at besides the snow.
Then I got sick of Santa and added Frosty the Snowman. He took some doing.
I originally made him with legs, but he just didn't look right. So now he
kind of slides around the screen legless. He reminds me a little of a Dalek
somehow, only a lot less evil. I decided to make him only available in the
full registered version since people who register deserve extra stuff. I can't
keep making these, or any other screensavers, if people don't register!
Anyway, in general I think this is a nice little screensaver that's worth
watching. I thought after a few years you guys might want something other
than my A Very 3D Christmas
Screensaver to run in the silly season. Thanks to the magic of UC3D, since
they both use it, if you install this and that it will switch between them
every few minutes so you wont get bored! You get set it to do this at whatever
interval you like, or not at all. It's up to you. For more info on UC3D go
Ofcourse if you register UC3D you get the full versions of both this and
that. If you just want to register this one, then you can do that too. You
can get the full version straight away from: http://www.UselessCreations.com/xmas/register
As always, if you find bugs, let me know!
Enjoy, and have a Merry Christmas!
