You're welcome! To expand on your suggestion, leaves could fall across the screen during Fall, and flowers for Spring? There could be an option to turn the feature off though as not all users would want the snowflakes for the whole of Winter.

I wonder why it was taken off? I'm really not sure, but perhaps it was slowing the site down or it was a problem to run?
I think that this could be a nice little feature, however only if you had the ability to turn it off, as it might be a bit irritating to some. Also, it might not run as well with mobile devices, but as I said I'm really not sure.
I think it would certainly be nice to see.
As all things once did,
This too shall pass.
I'd imagined it was removed because it slowed the site down or it was too distracting. I'm not entirely sure though.
It would be wonderful if we could bring this back. We could incorporate the ability to turn them off or alternatively we could only have it occur for the few days leading up to Christmas.

That would be very cute! Alternatively, we could have confetti fall during the Festivale or during New Year's.
I'll bring this up for discussion. Thank you for your awesome suggestions.
I see issues with this. Granted it is very old. Just visit the link, you have and scroll to the bottom quickly and notice the bounce. One might say that it could be just the old page but if you visit the library homepage they used for this you will still see the the same abnormal behavior. . We have to be careful not to sacrifice the functionality of the site for decorations.
That being said, I am sure there are newer and better libraries out there for this functionality these days and maybe it would be an interesting addition to the holidays and/or winter months and should be looked at. Just with a careful eye on site functionality.
I agree that the site's functionality is more important than decorations, Dusty! I also agree that we should find a newer version of falling snowflakes because of the bounce.
I have another thing to add about this: perhaps it could be for the beginning day(s) of a season/new ACC theme! For example, for the first couple days of winter we could have the snowflakes fall to welcome in the new theme and get people even more excited about it! Also, we could have the on/off feature as you guys mentioned before for the users who do not like the snowflakes/other seasonal falling objects.
