Merry Christmas 2018: Google Doodle Wishes 'Happy Holiday' With Animated Logo
Google Doodle on Christmas

Celebrating Christmas along with millions of people across the world today, Google wished its users a 'Happy Holiday' with a series of Doodles on December 25. The logo of the search engine is decorated with various Christmas ornaments, and a decorated Xmas tree with gifts kept below it has replaced the alphabet 'L'.

When one moves the cursor of his or her mouse on the doodle, the animated logo mentions 'Happy Holidays'. There is also an elf resting on a rocking chair with a gift in his hand and also a Santa Claus on a chair with one leg resting on a gift.

In the North America, 'Happy holidays' is spoken or written on greetings during or before the Christmas and holiday season. The search engine released a series of doodles ahead of Christmas in the United States. While one showed a trio of elves flinging presents into Santa's sleigh as the reindeer awaited clearance for takeoff, the other showed Santa Claus dropping gifts down a chimney in a snowy suburban landscape.



These doodles were also available for users in UK, Italy and sub-Saharan Africa.

According to an international media organisation, Google also released a message of goodwill to accompany its festive design. "Joy to the world! During this time, folks around the world come together to share laughter, light, and festive feasts—all accompanied by songs of the season. "However you choose to celebrate this merry season, we wish you nothing but joy and fulfillment. Happy Holidays!" the message read.

Christmas, which falls on 25th of December every year, is celebrated as birth of Jesus Christ. On this day people all around the world decorate their houses with lights and Christmas trees. They have feasts, exchange gifts, bake plum cakes, sing carols and pray at church. Christmas is even more special for children, as they wait for Santa Claus to bring their gifts.

In some of the countries, Christmas is observed as a public holiday.
