Let it snow Christmas Count Down

Christmas Count Down Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let It Snow!

Today I took a break from studying to make the Christmas Count Down. The count down is made from the following mashups

The most challenging thing I found was getting IE9 to render the drop shadows. Internet explorer  doesn’t support the CSS3 text-shadow effect. I could of used JavaScript to  alter the text but I didn’t want to add any more JavaScript weight.  In the end I followed User Agents article and used the IE zoom and filter properties. This still isn’t perfect by any means.

Can you make the counter snow? Try it out and let me know

Happy Xmas
