Musical Google Doodle Wishes Users 'Happy Holidays'
Google continued the holiday cheer today with a homepage doodle that highlights the symbols of the season.
In an image reminiscent of a Lite-Brite, Google spells out its logo with a snowflake, Santa Claus, a bell, snowman, candle, and a present. When you first click on the logo, though, there will be six blinking lights below the Google name. Click them to dim the background lights and turn on the Christmas lights. Once all the images are lit up, they will begin to dance to "Jingle Bells."
This is not Google's first holiday-related surprise for its users. Last weekend, the company published one of its Easter Eggs: searching for the term "let it snow" (without quotes) produced some snowy search results that allowed users to "draw" on the snow-covered screen. Searching for "Hanukkah" and "Christmas," meanwhile, also produced search results enhanced by holiday lights.
