Snow WordPress Plugin lets you create snowflakes (and more) falling down your blog! There are snowflakes, leaves, drops – and balloons that can float upwards. You can simply add more images in the pics folder and they will appear on the settings page.

You can configure the number of snowflakes and limit the plugin to specific posts or pages. If you enter something into the URI field you will only see snow if the URI of your page matches the string. No fancy regexps.
