Do you get all Christmassy this time of the year? If you enjoy screen savers, you'll want to consider Santa's Home. This 3D screen saver takes you on a tour of Santa's cottage on Christmas Eve, just before the Jolly One sets off on his annual world tour. Cheerful music plays in the background.

There are a few technical issues: This demo lets you watch the snowy scene for 60 seconds, then puts up a nag message that obscures the display. One other annoyance: As you install the demo, be sure to uncheck the option to install Astro Gemini's toolbar (unless you like that sort of thing, of course). And although the vendor states this screen saver runs on Windows machines up to Vista, it worked just fine in Windows 7.
