New York: Google, the search engine giant on Tuesday, wishes ‘happy holidays’ to its users with attractive Christmas eve doodle on its home page.
The doodle shows a winter scene in which a one-horse open sleigh is dragging along two children, with a snowy background and leafless trees.
If you move the cursor on the doodle then a message ‘Happy holidays from Google!’ will appear.
The search giant has avoided any mention of the word ‘Christmas’ as more people are expected to celebrate the festival as a non-religious event this year.
Last year, Google featured a colourful neon design doodle with images of a snowflake, Santa Claus, bell, snowman, candle and a gift box on a black background thus wishing its users “happy holidays”.
Google’s first holiday doodle, dating back to year 1999, featured a snowman. The snowman made up for the first “O” of the Google logo, and as users scrolled over the Doodle it displayed the message, “Seasons’ greetings with a Google Doodle.”
