Google Says Merry Christmas

Google’s holiday Doodle has finally arrived after being spotted around the world over the last two days. The early timing of the festive logo in Australia, was unusual and unexplained, but there seems to have been be two versions it – one static and, today, one animated, which also plays jingle bells.  Some people were having trouble playing the animation in their web browsers so here is a video of the animation in action.

Besides Google’s animation, they have also provided us with multiple other holiday surprises this year.  There is the “let it snow” Easter Egg, as well as YouTube now has a snowflake button to make it snow along with your video.  If you have trouble finding the button on YouTube, just search “let it snow” on YouTube and see the snow appear!

As mentioned in another one of my posts, Google has also set up a Google Voicemail where you can send an actual voicemail to Santa! If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a shot, it’s pretty fun.

Use all of these holiday features Google has set up for you and have a happy holiday!
