A Christmas-related app that displays an animated snowglobe on your desktop
Check the report.

Snow Globe Countdown is a Christmas-related program that displays an animated snowglobe on your desktop. Right below the snowglobe it shows a clock that is counting down to Christmas. The program also includes some Christmas sounds that you can set to be played back every hour or half hour.

Snow Globe Countdown includes nine skins that you can change manually. Besides, you can set the due date to: “Christmas - December 24”, “Christmas - December 25”, “New Year - January 1” and “Julian Christmas - January 7”. You can also change the font, the style, the size, and the color of the countdown clock.

All those changes can be made from the simple menu that the program includes. You can access this menu by right-clicking either on the snowglobe itself or on the icon the program installs in the system tray. You can also drag the snow globe and place it anywhere on your desktop. Moreover, you can hide or show either the snowglobe and the countdown clock, the countdown clock only, set the program to run automatically at Windows start-up, set the program to stay always on top, etc.

In conclusion, Snow Globe Countdown will surely make your wait for Christmas much more bearable and funny.
