UPDATE 24 Dec
It turns out that the static Happy Holiday Google Doodle is just the beginning. Today (24 Dec) released an interactive version of it, with the Jingle Bell music.
I guess this holiday doodle is the few Google Doodles that do not require any explanation. It’s not for the memorial of somebody, it’s not a national day. It’s simply the festive season!
Just published on 23 December 2011, this doodle is made to celebrate the Christmas and new year. Each year Google releases happy holidays doodles during this season. Below are a few of the best happy holidays doodles I like in the past years.
Christmas is coming, and Google is prepared to give us surprises. The first one is an easter egg in Google search. Try entering “let it snow” (without the quotes) and see what happened?
Yes, your web browser is snowing! You can see snow flakes fall down and your browser screen gradually becomes frozen. a “defrost” button will appear later, click on it to return to a workable Google search.
Another surprise by Google is call or video by Santas. This is a US / Canada only service in which you can ask Santa to give a call to your friend. Simply go to http://www.sendacallfromsanta.com/ to begin or you may also find the following banner when you log-in to Gmail.
No it’s not those simple canned messages, you can customize it by giving the name of your friend, his likes/dislikes, where he lives, etc. so that the message by Santa would be more lively.
This funny game is available as a Chrome web app, check it out now!
