What's New
Version 2.1:
  • Moved lightsets to Application Support to prevent future versions from overwriting them*
  • Support for hanging mode - lightsets may be displayed around screen border or hanging from the top of the screen.
  • Widget now automatically positions itself when launched
  • Better resizing algorithm fits tightly to the screen edges
  • Close button has been moved to a more accessible location
  • Optimized for greater efficiency
*Please note that (due to a programming oversight on my part, for which I apologize) installing this version will overwrite any custom lightsets you have previously installed. If you downloaded the lightsets from this page, please simply do so again. However, if you have any lightsets that you did not obtain from interdimension media, please back them up before installing the new version. To do so, browse to ~/Library/Widgets, CTRL-click on Christmas Lights, and select "Show Package Contents." Copy them from the Lightsets directory and reinstall them after installing version 2.1. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've had this widget and enjoyed it for a couple years but this year, I found that the lights no longer display. The little tag for changing my lightsets appears but there are no lights. I've tried reinstalling many different times, but nothing appears to change (I've tried downloading from here and from the original website).

I would like to email the maker of the widget, but I can't seem to find contact info. Any help with that or making my lights work again would be very appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Pretty sure this widget had been abandoned, but the developer has released an updated widget called Festive Lights:

I installed "Lights" after Xmas 07, and are they cool! Being a fan of Halloween as well, might the developer make a version with purple, green and orange lights-- for the Jack-O-Lantern set?
