Holiday Templates & Extensions for Joomla

  (by )

Believe it or not, but the holidays are right around the corner, so it’s time to start getting your Joomla site ready with some great extensions and templates!  I found some free extensions that will make it look like snow is falling on your site, as well as a flash countdown timer to help you remind your visitors of the number of days left until a particular holiday–a great extension for online merchants who want to remind their customers they only have a few shopping days left! 

If you want to radically change the look of your website for the holidays, I’ve also found some premium Joomla templates designed to give your site a cheery look!


This free Joomla extension includes three different effects–flying bats for Halloween, fireworks for New Years, and falling snow that collects at the bottom of the screen for winter.  YOOholidays is very easy to install and you can set this extension to start and end on specific dates.

Flash Countdown Timer

This is a simple Joomla extension for counting down the time until a specific date (i.e., Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, etc.) on your website.  Flash Countdown Timer is great extension for online retailers who want to remind their customers they only have a certain number of shopping days left until a particular holiday.

    Wish I found this site last December we had a client come with a rush redesign, wanted a Christmas feel for the holidays, would have saved lots of time to use one of these.

    Wow thanks for these templates; I have been wanting to do a Christmas site but could not find a template. I will definitely be getting one of these holiday ones that you suggest.
