If you're like me, you're both lazy (time efficient, as I like to say) and believe Christmas comes AFTER Thanksgiving - not before or during!
Thus, I needed to be figure out how to automate the appearance of Christmas music in my (one and only) library, without having to click on filters, set dates or all the things ambitious people do.
Inspired by this comment...
The only thing I use a second library for is my holiday music. The reason is that if I put it in my regular library, then I have to go to a lot of trouble to filter it out of all my playlists, filters, searches, etc and it's not worth the effort for music I use about 1 month a year.
...I set out to not only build a Christmas-themed skin, but also incorporate a panel into my one and only library that only displays holiday music during the period that holiday occurs. And it's not limited to just the Christmas season - Halloween, or any timeframe really works! "But Mr. Incredible Boom Boom, doesn't Thanksgiving change every year," you might wonder... Yes, and that's accounted for! Next year, Turkey Day is 11/24 and so the panel will be blank from 11/01 through the end of the 24th!
Here's the transition from Thanskgiving to after Thanksgiving.
And the result...
