The internet is awash in “free” screensavers, but most of the websites offering them look a bit trashy and/or scary. That said, here are five Christmas and holiday themed screensavers, plus three seasonal icon sets, for Apple’s Snow Leopard that are either free or offer functional demos.

Gingerbread Cookies, 13.9MB
— ‘Tis the season for a delightful batch of gingerbread cookies
— Free demo w/ four gingerbread men, $5 registration nets you 16 gingerbread men

Frosted, 10.6MB

— Free demo, $5 registration adds characters, etc.

A Very 3D Christmas, 1.8MB
— Watch Santa cruise round in his sleigh delivering presents, Christmas countdown clock

Falling Snow,
