A wonderful christmas tree in Powershell

By the way, to capture this christmas tree I used cropper and a plugin to it called Animated Gif.


Last night I spoke at DAYSPUG in Dayton Ohio, and since Christmas is only about 10 days away – I thought it would be fun to introduce two Christmas-related PowerShell Functions that I threw together.

The two functions are:

  1. New-ChristmasTree – This function generates an awesome, and mostly tacky animated, flashing Christmas tree in the PowerShell console.
  2. Get-DaysUntilChristmas – This function uses New-TimeSpan and Get-Date to calculate the number of days until Christmas.  The output is something like “There are 10 days until Christmas!”

Here is the New-ChristmasTree function:

Here is the Get-DaysUntilChristmas function:

Here is a screenshot of the Get-DaysUntilChristmas function in action:
