When can we be rid of the festive versions?

I have two games that haven't been updated since before Christmas, and they are of course festive versions. I am talking about Touch Sports Tennis and Blast. I know there are probably more out there that still have festive versions too (does anyone want to list any they have?)
I am just wondering if the devs for the two I have (I know you are out there!) could please let us know when we will be going back to normal and getting rid of the snow (as much as I like watching Anna running around and falling over in her skimpy Xmas outfit).
It's like still having the Xmas tree up at home. Xmas is over.

Wow that sucks, I'm glad none of my apps are like this.

Now I don't want to be the one to break it to you Oliver, buddy- but Santa ain't coming anymore! He's fast asleep! If you haven't had your presents under the tree by now, then that means you've been a naughty boy

I'm having sort-of the opposite feeling. My most-played game is PuzzleManiak. It's a great collection of puzzle games, but I never liked the graphical style, with the flaming letters and the whole "demonic" theme. I mean, we're talking puzzles here, not Doom. In December, a Christmas version came out and I tremendously prefer it. It's a matter of personal taste, I guess, but I like the serene, snow-capped look rather than the fire:

vs.

So that's one app I'm hoping won't revert to normal soon. Unfortunately, the developer is very active so I'm sure it will change back before too long.

The only other game I have with a holiday theme is Fuzzle, but they made the sensible choice of making it an option you can choose in the settings.

I DON'T WANT TOUCHSPORTS TENNIS TO CHANGE BACK! I mean, do you really want Ana to revert from that skimpy outfit she's wearing now?

At least Koi Pond has a toggle switch so you can decide if you want the festive theme on or off.
