Opting out of seasonal themes

Opting out of seasonal themes

Short, concise description of the idea
Could you please arrange for an "opt-out" option on these seasonal themes?

Full description of the idea
I have a particular visual issue which makes this theme come out as nearly invisible to me which makes navigating LJ a bit of a problem. Any dark background does this, not just this particular theme but the theme is forced on so there isn't currently a way to opt out of it short of monkeying with style sheets.

An ordered list of benefits
  • People with visual disabilities such as mine would be better able to navigate the site.
  • People who don't participate or care about certain seasonal holidays or events would be spared having to deal with them.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • The only problem I could see with adding this sort of feature would be that some people feel it's no big deal - because it doesn't affect them. Having it as optional could make them unhappy or irritated.
