People may complain, but I really like the Christmas Scheme!
Most of the time I don't notice. Like for April Fools Day. Some days it reminds me, oh yeah today is Saint Patrick's Day, or Halloween. Which are just normal days for me, but affect me if I go out.

Then most Christmases I'm not even on RPoL. So I don't think I've ever had the chance to see it for but a glance. I like the wreath and tree. I think they're cute, and cheery, but in a cool color scheme. So it made me all fuzzy and relaxed when I'm all alone. It sort of my me a little warm inside, especially on a white Christmas. :)

It was the sudden holiday themes appearing that made me aware we even had a choice of colour schemes.

I won't complain, but I will not be on tonight from the house, so by the time I get back to things here, my Dark Red scheme should re-assert itself.  If not, I know what to do...

Joyeux Noel!  Merry Christmas from New Orleans!

Odd, the only change for me is the rpol picture.

You use a custom theme.

So it overrides preset themes but not custom themes?

Almost as weird as the "i" before "e" rule. :)

It's because some people used to complain every time about the fact that their chosen theme would be overridden three times* per year (Three times!  Outrageous!), and demanded that they be given an option for it to not happen.  Custom themes are that option.

*Christmas, Saint Patrick's Day, and April Fool's Day.

My only gripe with the Christmas theme is that I'm mildly red-green colorblind...so the lighter greens in it look, to me, more like greenish grays, but for an hour or so, one day a year?  I'm more than willing to endure it for the sake of someone else's holiday joy.
