Add Christmas Countdown Widget in WordPress
Previously, we have shared how to hide and display WordPress widgets on specific posts and pages to prevent creating multiple custom sidebars. So if you want to display Christmas countdown widget on some pages and hide from some specific pages then you should read that article.
However, Christmas Countdown Widget is a WordPress plugin which helps you to display a cute Santa Claus Countdown Clock in your WordPress sites’ sidebar. On the widget, it displays how many days left till December 25, 2015.
Here is a screenshot of the Christmas countdown widget:
In order to add the Christmas widget on your WordPress site just install Christmas Countdown Widget plugin and activate it. Once you activated the plugin simply drag and drop the widget called ‘Santa’s Countdown‘ in the sidebar (by going to Appearance > Widgets). All done, the plugin works automatically and countdown automatically gets updated each year and starts over again. Though, you can leave it in the sidebar all year long if you like. haha!
Now, you can use the shortcode [countdown] to add the countdown to posts/pages or custom post types. Please comment below if you have any questions.
