Google Doodles are the google logo made into fun images to celebrate anniversaries, lives of famous people like pioneers, scientists or artists, and special events taking place around the world.
The google doodle began in 1998 when the co-founders of google placed a stick-man on their logo to indicate they were attending a festival in Nevada USA. The first doodle was very simple and the idea of placing a doodle on the google logo to celebrate notable events was born.
In the year 2000 the owners asked their chief webmaster to place a doodle on the log to celebrate Bastille Day in France – this logo was much appreciated by users that they decided to make this a permanent feature on their homepage. Nowadays events vary from Charles Adams 100th
birthday to Grandparents day. Lee Paul the American Jazz and Country guitarist had a google doodle of a guitar and if you place the cursor over the strings you can even play the doodle guitar.
The doodle team has created over 300 doodles for Google.com in the United States and over 700 have been designed internationally.
