Holiday Lights -- David K. Dean <dkdean@iastate.edu> writes:
I'd like to recommend Holiday Lights 3.0 from Robert Matthews of Tiger Technologies. It started out as Xmas Lights 1.0, then changed to Christmas Lights 1.0 (from the now-defunct Atticus Software), and has now become Holiday Lights 3.0. As the ReadMe file says, "Is it useful? Well... okay, no. Is it really cool? Absolutely!" And that's why we all use Macs, isn't it?

The $15 piece of shareware puts a border of Christmas lights, holly, stockings, etc. around your screen. The customizable border supports drag & drop and includes a screensaver that displays the border with snow falling in the background. Several Christmas songs played via QuickTime Musical Instruments are also included. The program can be registered via email (the Order Form scrambles your credit card number when saved, or you can email Tiger Technologies for their PGP signature); registering gets you a bonus file with more Christmas songs and graphics, and a floppy disk with everything. I bought a copy for my wife - I figured everything else in our house is decorated, why not the Mac!
