<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/snowfall.css">

As for as HTML. it’s also simple and easy to understand. All you need to define the HTML5 tag snowfall and then place each snowflake inside it. Just example below.

	<snowflake><img src="img/snowflake.png">️</snowflake>
	<snowflake><img src="img/snowflake.png">️</snowflake>

If you don’t want to use the image or want to mix the snowflake with a combination of images and icon. You can add it as well.

<snowflake><span>💝</span> ️️</snowflake>

In our demo, we have also added some nice background which you can also do by defining the background-image property in your stylesheet.

	body {
		width: 100%;
		height: 100%;

		padding: 0;
		margin: 0;

	body {
		background-image: url(../img/pexels-photo-753337.jpeg);
		background-size: cover;
