All I want for Christmas is Windows 7 Contest


We thought it would be nice to start the Christmas holiday off with a simple contest of what member of Seven Forums can create and upload to this thread the best Windows 7 based Christmas theme pack.

Tip   Tip
To upload your theme pack entry, you will need to place the .themepack file in a ZIP file first. Next, click on the paper clip toolbar icon while editing your post here to upload the ZIP file. See steps 2 to 11 here for more on how.


The contest starts now and will end on December 12th 2009. This way we can hopefully get the prizes shipped to you before Christmas day. The winner will be announced and contacted for a shipping address.

Alright I have a possible theme I want to post:

Look to the post below for the updated theme

This theme includes two wallpapers that I believe resemble Christmas: Santa's Reindeer in vibrant red and Christmas Bells in deep blue.

This theme also uses the festival sound theme with some audio files replaced with ones I made myself...

Is that it? Nope...just got tired for tonight...

What is to come...a screen saver and an icon set...maybe a cursor set as well (that really depends...)

Let me know guys what you think

PS I forgot to mention that I named the theme Aero Christmas...just so you know

Here is an update...

I have added a stunning Christmas Tree Wallpaper that balances out the Christmas Theme (Red, Blue, Green)

Is this just supposed to be a theme with custom sounds, wallpapers, and window colors`? Or can we also include gadgets, icons etc.?

Yeah right...I am good at making compilations...not creating things...

Do gadgets end up in themepacks?
