Google’s Holiday Doodle Revealed

Tired of waiting for Google to reveal their 2011 holiday doodle? Well, wait no more because it’s here! Well, it’s not exactly here for Google users in the U.S. yet, but it’s showing up in places where it’s already Christmas Eve, like New Zealand, Korea, and Japan.

The 2011 doodle features their Google logo outlined in Christmas lights and when you click on the logo, it’ll pull up a search for ‘happy holidays.’ I can’t help but think there’s got to be some kind of Easter egg hiding in that logo, but I won’t get to find out until I can actually play around with it tomorrow.

Aside from their holiday doodle, Google also has a fun holiday Easter egg, ‘Let it snow‘ that turns your computer screen into a winter wonderland. You can also type “Christmas” or “Santa” into Google and a pretty little row of Christmas lights will appear. Try searching for “Hanukkah” or “Kwanzaa” for more surprises.

Google isn’t the only one getting into the holiday spirit, however. Visit LinkedIn and you just might notice someone named “Snow E. Mann,” an independent snow management consultant from the North Pole, has viewed your profile. Click on his profile and a box will pop up that says “Happy Holidays from LinkedIn.” Cute!

You’ll also find that YouTube has a few seasonal surprises up their sleeve, like adding a snow button to select videos, including Bruce Springsteen’s “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” video.Click the little snowflake on the bottom right and watch as snowflakes fall down the video and accumulate at the bottom of your screen.

Have you found any other holiday Easter eggs yet?
