Decorate your devices for the Holidays

The Holiday season is in full swing so I though it would be a good idea to track down some ways to bring the Holiday Spirit to your various devices. A visit to Google will produce links to thousands of Holiday wallpapers. Apple Umbrella for example, has links to a whole bunch of wallpapers that will work on both Mac and Windows PCs.

If you have a Windows 7 PC perhaps you would prefer to load a Holiday theme that would dress up every aspect of your windows experience. Microsoft offers several choices here.

If you want to get a bit fancier there are apps that will create more elaborate decorations for your screen. Mac Life has put together a few to dress up your Mac screen in Holiday Cheer..If you use all the gadgets your screen will look like this.

For the PC there is the  standard by which all other PC decorations should be measured.  Holiday Lights lets you string bulbs all around your screen, even on top of the  program windows if you’d like. You can customize madly–bulbs for holidays  year-round, MIDI songs, blinking patterns–and save your settings as a desktop  theme. Download the free trial here. Here is what it looks like on my desktop.

We can’t forget about our portable devices..they could use a bit of holiday spirit too. For the iPad there is Christmas Lock Screen Calendars and Wallpapers By AppEzzy It offers a growing selection of Home Screen Wallpapers and Lock Screen Calendars. You can find a wallpaper app for iPhone and iPod Touch here

And finally for Android I really like Christmas Snow Live Wallpaper from A.).I. works well and provides a good variety of pictures. You can get it at the Android Market

After setting up all these decorations, how can you help feeling the holiday spirit. If you have other suggestions to offer, please share them below. It is after all “tis The Season”
