Update Jan 30, 2011
Updated the plugin to the latest stable version of the snow script. Added additional options to the plugin admin page.
Update Nov 07, 2009
I have not been supporting this plugin for a long long time, almost 2 years in fact. Since Christmas is round the corner, I thought I should give this plugin a nice refresh. I have updated the snow script to the latest version. Best of all, I have added a plugin settings page so it’s easier for those who are not comfortable with tweaking code.
In 2007, WordPress.com introduced a falling snow options for its users after Matt Mullenweg asked for a falling snow script. Because the feature was only available to WordPress.com users and not self-hosted WordPress blogs, I took the falling snow code and made a plugin that exactly the same thing. All users needed to do was to download and activate the plugin to have beautiful falling snow flakes on the blogs.
