Decorating your site for the holidays: part 2

When you decide to theme your site for the holidays, It doesn't have to be a drastic change, it could be something as simple as changing your CSS styles to make the colors of your site seem more christmasy. However I would strongly suggest changing your logo to fit the holidays, That is a big symbol on your page and may be all you need to do to decorate.

Google does it every year and has actually gained a reputation for it. The guy who designs them even has his own title for what the logos are called, . Here are some of the logos he's created. You don't have to be a pro like him, but at-least put a little effort into it like maybe put a snowflake in your logo, put a santa hat and scarf around your mascot, redesign your logo using Christmas Lights.

On the sites that I themed for the holidays I saw a 20% increase in usage of the sites starting after I did it.

I'm planning on theming my blog for the holidays as well, however the idea I have will require time.

One reader posted his site as a comment to my last decorating your site for the holidays post, he simply changed the colors of his site to fit the season.
