    Ever since we switched to XenForo, we haven't had a Christmas theme :(. At least, not beyond the Christmas Smilies, which were thankfully (depending on who you ask) preserved. Since it's only a few months to December, I'm wondering if we could put together a new Christmas theme.

    I should note that I don't really have the time, nor XenForo expertise... but I do have an archive of the vBulletin Christmas theme. I've attached both a screenshot of one such archive, and an archive itself. The archive can be decompressed, and then viewed as an archive file in either Internet Explorer, or Opera 12 (it can also be viewed in Vivaldi or Chrome with some tweaking of settings).

    Anyone else a fan of the old Christmas theme and want to make it come back, or know about XenForo theming?

    Maybe an admin could chime in on this - @Camikaze? @Petek?

    I should think that there would be Christmas themes available on the XenForo support forum, so maybe one could be chosen from there - if there's more than one available for a reasonable price (preferably free, of course), maybe pick two or three and put it to a vote?

    If it comes down to cost, I would not mind pitching in a little to a crowdfunding effort.

    I wouldn't use a Christmas theme but I figure if that gets added, it increases the likelihood of other themes being added later. :mischief:

    A winter theme that's not Christmas-specific would be nice. Something with snow. I never used the old Christmas theme here, since I preferred Dark Blue (the one my eyes found most relaxing; I use the black theme now).

    Yes, a Christmas design would be nice (especially when seeing one of my posts in the example above :D) and a design with falling snow would also be very nice. :clap:
