How to enable snow effect on your WordPress site without plugins

Christmas season is around and WordPress is offering site owners an option to show snow effect on their websites without plugins. This can be enabled both on self-hosted WordPress (WordPress.org) sites and WordPress.com sites, without the need for installing a plugin. To enable this on your WordPress sites, you will need to login into your WordPress WP Admin dashboard, or login to the WordPress.com dashboard and enable it for each site you own from there.
