Still works reasonably well in Mavericks - no snowflake animation any more, but the bulbs float above all windows, so I'm still happy.

Just installed and configured this for the 2012 Christmas season and it's working fine on OS X 10.7.6 Intel 64, so don't let the fact that it hasn't been updated in years scare you off. I've used it for 3 years now and don't recall having any trouble. Adds some holiday cheer to my screen and and it's FREE!

There's plenty of options for both the tree and the lights around the screen.

You'll also like the MacLampsX screensaver - I'm running it too. https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/16740/maclampsx

OOPS - that should be OS X 10.7.5. I thought there had been another update.

It might help if I loaded the correct version - duh! This last version did indeed slow down Santa, and I was able to click on him for more options. When I wrote the last review, I had accidentally started up the old 'fast Santa' version. My mistake. The app works great. Thanks again for providing it to all of us Mac users. Merry Christmas!

Very Nice app. Kind of the developer to provide it for free. This last version "slowed down Santa"? Not for me. "Click on Santa" for additional options? Lots of luck. He wizzes by too fast. Anyway… Thanks for the neat app. Very cool.

I love this app, very festive, and the multi-monitor support is superb!

just one thing..... can we slow down Santa's 'fly past'? he is just a blur!

This is very festive and cute. I only wish I had seen TreetopLights earlier.

The optional but festive menubar lights can blink or glow to decorate the menubar, or even go around the screen. A customizable countdown timer displaying days until Christmas and the twelve days of Christmas is included for display on the desktop tree and dock icon. There's also an option to send a Christmas greeting through Apple's Mail application. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
