Nice surprise from Grub today

Nice surprise to see Grub appearing with its winter skin today.

So Grub can be configured for some events, like birthdate, Christmas, New Year, … ?

I’ve checked in /boot/grub and saw nothing like a .xml file to edit (like one used for background on Gnome desktop). How is it done ?


Yes I liked it too, I didn’t get it on my 11.1 laptop for a while, but then I got it twice today.

I don’t personally know about it, but I believe you can find that information here: Random Holiday GRUB - openSUSE Forums


IIRC it’s actually random and the randomness or lack of it can be controlled by a setting when generating the splash.
