Make Snow Fall From Your Web Site




Hey guys!!! I found this really really cool javascript from dynamicdrive.com that allows you to make snow fall from your website. As you can see, snow is already falling from this website! weeEEEeeeee… Superb Stuff! Merry Christmas!!

Great stuff for your website and blogs! Anyways, here’s how it’s done.

Step 1

snow.gif <—- Right click on this image and “Save As”. Upload into your webserver.

Step 2

Copy the text below and paste it entirely below your index’s tag. Change the URL path to the snow image accordingly and you are done! Have fun with the snow, yeah.

<script type=”text/javascript”>

//Configure below to change URL path to the snow image
var snowsrc=”snow.gif”
// Configure below to change number of snow to render
var no = 10;
// Configure whether snow should disappear after x seconds (0=never):
var hidesnowtime = 0;
// Configure how much snow should drop down before fading (“windowheight” or “pageheight”)
var snowdistance = “pageheight”;
