Windows 11: download holiday-themed wallpaper

Microsoft kicked off the holiday season with Windows 11 users by releasing a new custom holiday-themed (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year) wallpaper. The desktop background was created in collaboration with Kervin Brisseaux, creative director of Haitian American.

The Windows 11 wallpaper is an “abstract artwork,” which “merges the updated design of Windows 11 with the magical, vibrant nature of the holidays.”

“The light and bright elements of the visual story Brisseaux imagined for his background track with the new color palette and softer, more approachable graphics of Windows 11,” the company explains.
