Count down the days until Christmas with a fun snowy countdown.

- Choose from eight beautiful backgrounds, featuring Santa and his reindeer, many Christmas trees, and even a snowman!
- Enjoy classic Christmas music including Deck the Halls and We Wish You a Merry Christmas
- Watch the falling snow on the countdown screen
- Open a new gift every day of December in your advent calendar! You'll get a beautiful Christmas themed HD image which you can set as your wallpaper, as well some other ideas to help you get in the Christmas mood :D
- No ads! I really don't like ads in apps, so there are none at all in Christmas Countdown :)
- Upgrade to premium to get a countdown widget so you can quickly see how many long there is until Christmas! You'll also get more music, including Jingle Bells and Silent Night, extra backgrounds and an exclusive countdown style!

I have a lot of fun developing Christmas Countdown, and love hearing from you! Talk to me about the app at apps@jupli.com or @juplichristmas on Instagram and Twitter :)
