Theming Your Website for Special Events

Have You Even Seen a Decorated Website?

We decorate our homes for Christmas; why not our websites? There's been a trend over recent years to add some theming or decorations to a website when special events occur. Easter, Valentine's Day and Christmas are three of the most common times you'll see different graphics on websites. We thought it was time we took at look at this growing trend and discuss the ways you can have your website join in too.
