JKR.com decorated for Christmas

Christmas card from JKR.com
Christmas decorations have appeared on Jo’s site again this year.
So far they seem to be mostly the same as the past two years; the only major differences I notice are the cards on the Extra Stuff bulletin board, and the snowman globe in the Links bookcase is moved.
We’ll keep you posted if more develops.
Merry Christmas! 🙂

EDIT: I’ve been noticing for a while that with each change to the graphics the entire site appears to be getting “darker and darker”. There are more shadows, with a deeper contrast, and the overall “tone” seems to be well, just… darker! I have no idea if this is intentional, if it simply indicates different artists’ work, or if it is pure coincidence. But I find it curious and possibly reflective of the darker tone in the books’ progression. You can see this most clearly in the succession of images on the Links bookcase page. (Notice the candle flame shrinking?) It also shows in the shadow cast across the new Diary on the desktop.
