Winter ‘Easter’ egg: Let it snow

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

For those who didn’t know, Google’s engineers programmed many funny easter eggs hidden in search queries. The latest one perfectly matches the time of year:

Type ‘let it snow’ in the Google search box, and the snowflakes start falling down the page! After a little while the search results page will become clouded, but luckily you can clear it by pressing the search button which turned into a ‘defrost’ button. Ow, and the first hit is the Christmas carol ‘let it snow’ by Dean Martin, a nice touch. 😉

More examples of Google easter eggs: type “do a barrel roll“, or “tilt“, and do you remember the Jet Ski in Google Maps. 😉
