Deck out your iPhone and iPad with holiday wallpaper, music, movies, apps and more!

The holidays are upon us and what spreads holiday cheer more than decking out your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with lots of holiday content? Whether it's wallpapers, music, movies, apps, or games, it's easy to make your favorite iOS device the center of your festivus festivities.

Holiday wallpapers

One of the nicest treats for the holidays is a seasonally stylish new wallpaper for your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Our TiPb Forums have a great thread going to find some really nice ones, and share your own. Check it out!

Holiday music

If you already have a ton of holiday music in your collection, why not enjoy it on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad? If it's on CDs, just load them into your computer and rip them into iTunes. If you've ripped them into iTunes already, you can use Home Sharing to stream them to your device, or use iTunes sync or Wi-Fi sync to move them over. If you bought them from Apple's iTunes Store, you can use iTunes in the Cloud to re-download them right to your device -- or iTunes Match if you've subscribed! If you're starting from scratch, you can check out holiday channels on apps like Slacker or just hit up iTunes and buy yourself some classics!

Holiday movies

Whether your favorite holiday movie is Miracle on 34th Street, Elf, or Diehard, curling up with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad is a great way to enjoy them. If your movie collection is scattered in a bunch of different places and formats on your PC hard-drive, you can use something like Air Video to transcode them on the fly and watch them right on your device or beam them via AriPlay to an Apple TV and your big screen television. If they're all safe and sound in your iTunes library, again you have Home Sharing to stream them to your device, or iTunes sync or Wi-Fi sync to move them over. No holiday movies to call your own? Find some on Netflix or go straight to iTunes and check out their holiday collection.

Holiday apps and games

When it comes to the holidays, you can bet your last chocolate coin there's an app for that. In fact, there are many apps for all kinds of thats! From cards to carols, books to bells, cutting ropes to angering birds, cooking to candles, fireplaces to fun with photos, there's a ton of stuff to keep you busy.

Your favorite holiday stuff?

If you have a favorite holiday wallpaper, music, movie, or app or game, let us know in the comments. We'd love to check them out!
