Holiday Countdown

December 9, 2011

In the spirit of the year, I decided to make a small "screensaver"-like app that would keep track of how many days left until Christmas. It had to be exciting joyful and funny. Something that really represents the holidays.

Holiday Countdown features my high school band director as Santa Claus, flying across the starry night. Like all dreamy holidays, it's obviously snowing. There are trees and snowmen littering the field.

When you press space, a little box pops up saying how many days until Christmas!

There isn't really much to this program and it was pretty easy to code, but I had a lot of fun coming up with the idea and making it happen. If you listen closely, you can hear me saying "Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas!" whenever Santa Hannah flies across.
