Set Falling Show on Website for Christmas using Pure CSS Code


Falling Snow Effect with Pure CSS

It's winter and it's Christmas! If you are looking for some change on your website to show your visitors some joy of the festive show! Well, you can do that by just using some CSS.

Firstly to create you will require some snowflakes! Well there are a few Unicodes that you give all kinds of snowflakes.

Showflakes Unicodes List

  1. Snowflake : U+2746: ❄
  2. Tight Trifoliate Snowflake: U+2746: ❅
  3. Heavy Chevron Snowflake: U+2746: ❆

Now all you need to do is create div elements and set these snowflakes at random,

<div class="snowflakes" aria-hidden="true">
  <div class="snowflake size3">❅</div>
  <div class="snowflake size1">❆</div>
  <div class="snowflake size2">❅</div>
  <div class="snowflake size3">❆</div>
  <div class="snowflake size4">❅</div>
  <div class="snowflake size5">❆</div>
  <div class="snowflake size1">❅</div>
  <div class="snowflake size1">❆</div>
  <div class="snowflake size2">❅</div>
  <div class="snowflake size3">❆</div>
  <div class="snowflake size4">❅</div>
  <div class="snowflake size5">❆</div>
</div>

And next make use of the below CSS Code (Source: https://github.com/pajasevi/CSSnowflakes)
