Google Doodle Honors Special Days

google doodle

Google Doodle is more than just a nice picture to brighten up the otherwise spartan Google Search page; it is also used for honoring special days or special people.  Sometimes the Doodles are still images, sometimes they are animations and sometimes they are little interactive games.

The image above is an example of the Earth Day Google Doodle.  There are actually a few that were made for today, you can see them by refreshing your web browser.

Googlge Doodle helps remind us of not only holidays like Earth Day, but also of famous or important people.  For instance, they created a Google Doodle for the recent passing of the music artist Prince.
