Project Description
Let's bring Christmas to your desktop! This small application shows Christmas lights on your desktop. Written in C# using WPF.

What's this all about?
WPF Christmas Lights is a small application that decorates your windows desktop with blinking Christmas lights. By running these lights on your desktop you can enjoy the xmas atmosphere without leaving your PC!

Because it was possible...

The easiest way to install the Christmas Lights is via the Click-Once installation page:

Does it run on my PC?
The lights work on any pc having the .NET Framework version 4 installed. This includes machines running Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. You don't need the full framework, the lightweight "client-profile" is enough.

Feel free to take a look at the source code, if you have any suggestions or improvements just contact me.
