Get your holiday themes ready

Can you feel the holiday spirit?

It’s one of my favorite times of the year. Egg-nog is lining the store shelves. My grandma has already started her 3-month binge of Christmas movies. Friends and families are making plans for gatherings.

More importantly, it’s a season of giving. And, WordPress is all about giving.

That makes this a perfect time to start a new, fun experiment in the theme directory.

Prioritizing seasonal themes

The team decided to fast-track reviews for holiday themes. That means if you submit a Christmas theme, we’ll work with you to get that theme to users before Christmas is over.

It’s time to focus on giving users some fun themes for their sites this holiday season.

Right now, the holiday themes that we’re prioritizing are:

  • Christmas
  • Hanukkah
  • Winter Solstice

If you have another cultural/regional/religious holiday in December and want to have a theme ready for it, just let us know.

If all goes well, we may continue this experiment into the future for other holidays.

I’m challenging all theme authors to show me their best holiday designs. Let’s have fun with this.

Edit: When submitting your themes, make sure to add the holiday tag to your list of tags in style.css so that we’ll know your theme is a holiday theme.
