Let it snow on your website & cursors
Since yesterday it has been snowing on Piixel. I love adding holiday themed elements to my website and I thought this was so cute so I’m gonna share with you how to do this on your own website.
You don’t need to have a professional website to do this, in fact you can do this on almost any website where you can enter code so Blogger, WordPress and even Tumblr.
Let it snow | Falling snow on your website
So if you look closely on this website you can see snow falling if the window is active. To get this on your own website you need to:
Copy and paste the above code into the script area*** of your website, at the bottom of your code.
***Not sure where the script area is? Check the bottom of this post.

(I made the script a little slower so it’s easier on the eyes for blogs)
Holiday Cursors for your website
Another great way to make your blog more festive is a holiday cursor, replace your cursor with one of these festive ones or pick a different one.
If you found one you like scroll down and there are instructions on how to add them to your website. Because every cursor has it’s own code you can find it on the cursors page.
You don’t need to click the download button if you want it on your website.
Finding the ‘script area’
If you have multiple files paste it in index.html/.php except for WordPress users with a theme, see below.
If you are using WordPress with a theme then go to the themes folder, most likely:
public_html > wp-content > themes > nameofyourtheme
- Login and go to your Tumblr page.
- Click on Customize
- Click on Edit HTML
- At the very bottom paste the following code.
- At the top click on “Update Preview”. Did the snow show? If not leave a comment.
- If it snows, click on “Appearance” then click on “Save”.
- Log in and go to your account dashboard.
- Click on “Design” of “Template”
- Next click on “Edit HTML”
- Next paste the code at the bottom of the html box.
