    @LoverBoy – Thanks. ^_^ I try to get the whole trio (fonts, icons, and wallpapers) of holiday stuff out and available at least 1 – 1.5 weeks before each holiday. That way people will have time to gather their favourite items from each and then have a whole week to enjoy the custom desktop setup they create.

    I always find it SO discouraging when I see websites wait until the last nine seconds before publishing something for a holiday…by then it is pretty much too late to enjoy it at all or for no more than a day or two at most. :( So right now everyone can be enjoying the new custom Christmas desktops they made and yet be preparing for their New Year setup ahead of time. ^_^
