Friends i think if you are planning to release your theme in the last few day’s you need to hold back because if you release your theme now it will be 2013 release and if you release it after 3 – 4 days it will be counted in many blogs and articles as the theme that were released in 2014…

secondly it is holidays so less sales unless it is something related to a holiday theme…

request all authors to jump in and discuss what they think about this? is there any other disadvantage or advantage to it if you release the theme in the last week of the year?

There are advantages and disadvantages, if you release it now, you’ll have way more exposure.

You may have more clients looking at your theme, but it will go out of the homepage in only a few hours rather than 2-3 days like it is now

Yes agree with you about having more exposure on homepage for the themes released during holidays as less ppl are working your theme stand a chance to stay on the homepage… being featured on blogs for holiday themes will burn out like a shooting star tho…

Wouldn’t recommend it, I’m waiting till after the first of the year. Sales are way down during the holidays. Just look at all the recently released themes.

During this season holiday & xmas graphics should be selling well… but WP themes will naturally be down on sales i guess! it’s good know when is the best time to release your theme :)
