is an animated character dressed as Santa that wanders around your desktop and entertains you while you work or play. Fred's an animated cartoon figure who doesn't get any respect. He scurries around your desktop to encounter a rude dog, an unruly reindeer, a weird snowman, and other strange characters. Good-quality sound effects add to the fun.
There are options which let you increase the number of Freds, adjust the snow density, and mute the audio.
Xmas Fred can also be run in screen saver mode, complete with snow falling from the top of your monitor and gradually accumulating at the bottom.
