Dragging/dropping/combining Win 7 themes

Love some of the Christmas themes (but not all)
Love some of the Winter themes (but not all)

Is there a way to combine the two?

If you are talking about the wallpaper that comes with those themes try going to C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper and look for those themes wallpaper and put the ones you want in one of the folders and use that.
