If you are looking for a way to customize your XP machine for the holidays, you might want to install the oldie but goodie ChristmasTheme 2004 from Microsoft. Here we take a look at what you can expect when installing it on your XP computer.

After successful installation, the Display Properties window opens under the Theme tab and you need to click on Apply and Ok to start using it.

You’ll see it adds a neat looking snowy background with Santa Claus in his sled. It also changes the pointer and a few other icons like My Computer. Also when you boot up, it plays a Christmas jingle instead of the standard logon sound.

Here is a closer look at My Computer, My Network Places, My Documents, and the Recycle Bin icons after applying the theme. Also notice the pointer has been changed to a Santa ringing a bell.

Another cool feature is a neat 3D screensaver that shows Santa flying around and delivery presents.

Of course there are other Christmas and holiday themes you can download from customization sites, but this one is the official one offered by Microsoft. It gets the job done if you want to display the theme for a few days over the holiday season on your XP machine.

Since it’s the holiday season we thought we would bring you a collection of quality desktop wallpapers you can add to your computer.

Click on the picture to see the full-size image—not all of them are going to fit every screen resolution so you might have to adjust them a little. They’re still fun, though.
