Feature List:
snow on/off in acp 100% done
snow on/off in ucp 100% done
lights on/off in acp 100% done
lights on/off in ucp 100% done

If you have problems clicking links in an area under the lightbulbs, you have to open /ext/prosk8er/snowstormlights/styles/all/template/snowstorm/lights/christmaslights.css and find the class #lights { and change height:96px; to a value that is appropriate, some browsers this div object overlays the normal site and so you cannot click anything. It's set by default to 96px so it doesn't get in conflict with any site object.
don't set it too tiny, otherwise the exploding fragments will disappear too early and won't look so nice.
