    not that I would do seasonal websites (to be honest I think that it is something really stupid, except you are in the flower or garden business.)

    But I like the general idea of the article to give Resources to a special Design Topic. I would like to see something like this for other Design Styles like grunge, glossy, minimal or 3D-style as well… At least with a style, I like, too. ;)

      I agree in that a website should only do seasonal designs if it relates to their business; however, a little seasonal aspect that you add or change (such as an icon or a graphic) could be nice.
