    Add to FH properties like:
    • #fanarthandler.holiday.available - True/False
    • #fanarthandler.holiday.backdrop1
    • #fanarthandler.holiday.backdrop2

    <define>#useHolidayFanart:Yes</define>



    And XML file indicating holidays like:
    • <holiday datebegin="" dateend="">Holiday1</holiday>
    • <holiday datebegin="" dateend="">Holiday2</holiday>
    • <holiday datebegin="" dateend="">Holiday3</holiday>
    or something similar :)

    And folders:
    • Skin FanArt\Holidays\Holiday1\pictures...
    • Skin FanArt\Holidays\Holiday2\pictures...
    • Skin FanArt\Holidays\Holiday3\pictures...

    And settings like:
    • Always available
    • Available N minute after Window activated
    • Available N minute after MP Start
    We need it? Suggestions? Remarks?
    :):whistle::coffee:

    PS: True, I did not come up with how to use it, but maybe someone has ideas :)

    Well, in general a nice idea - but where should these fanarts be shown? As BasicHome/Home backgrounds? And where would those images come from?

    Probably yes. Or such as an icon for the window. But it is not all skins. At Titan there really is. :)
    Let us seek, find. And everyone will be able to adjust the image to suit your holidays.
