The festive Google Doodle!

I am loving the Google Doodle today. The page opened to unveil a beautiful collage of various landmarks/features of cities around the world. With just one click, you can get a glimpse of Mount Fuji (Japan), The Great Wall of China, delicious French cuisine in Paris (where else!), romantic gondola ride in Venice, classical Indian dancers, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and of course, Santa Claus on a rooftop, ready to go down the chimney with his bag of gifts! 

Google has a tradition of changing its logo to commemorate birthdays, holidays etc. Some of my favourite Google Doodles this year include Robert Stevenson's 160th birthday (he happens to be the author of Treasure Island), Discovery of X-Ray (the rubber ducky was too cute!), Pacman's 30th Anniversary Doodle, and the 170th Birthday of Tchaikovsky  (the composer of the beautiful ballet, Swan Lake).

What was your favourite Google Doodle this year?

Merry Christmas!
