Google Lets It Snow Via "Let It Snow" Google Search

Google "Let It Snow" ...And It Will Surely Snow!!!

This holiday season, Google's got a neat little Easter egg to keep you cheery...especially if you live in an area that doesn't get any snow, but would like to see some.

Just Google "let it snow" (without the quotes) and you'll be able to see some virtual snowflakes falling down your computer screen on the Google search page.

The Google Snowflake Easter Egg

If you let it snow long enough, the Google search button will actually turn into a "Defrost" button that you can use to get rid of the frost and clear your computer screen. -The snowflakes will continue to fall down the page.

Also, once the defrost button appears, you can hold down your left mouse button and use it to erase the accumulated frost...just like clearing off a real frosted window! :)

All in all, it's some fun, festive stuff from Google for the winter holidays. Enjoy!!!

Btw, just like last year, if you do a Google search for 'Hanukkah', you'll see some special decorations along the top of the page. :)

NOTE: As of this posting, Google searches for "Christmas" and "Kwanzaa" seem to be like they are normally.

  1. Google has many more ester eggs and they played a lot of practical jokes on their more "gullible" users.

  3. @Robert: Yes, indeed. Google can certainly be fun. Sure as hell beats Bing and Yahoo! Those search engines suck, IMHO.

    @Victor: Glad to see you mentioned Google TiSP (Toilet Internet Service Privider). One of my all-time favs. ;)
