2016 was a year of ups and downs and like with every New Year’s Eve, comes a special Google Doodle. One thing’s for sure, this New Year’s Eve doodle will clearly keep you waiting.
Heading over to the Google Search page shows five colourful and animated birds sitting on a branch waiting for an egg to hatch. Upon closer inspection it is obvious that they are all decked up to bring in the New Year when the egg with a 2016 sash cracks open.
But sadly that time is yet to come and while the birds grow anxious (and it is the same with us) Google keeps us busy by leading us to a Google Trends page from the link below the doodle.
Hitting the link takes us to the Google Trends page with plenty of things to keep you busy till the New Year arrives. And pretty much everything that you and your friends (and their friends) searched for is in there. From India’s saddest moments to the Paris attacks to recently released Star Wars flick and the discovery of water on Mars and everything in between. Surely makes a great way to stay distracted as the New Year is just a couple of hours away.
Last year’s New Year’s Eve doodle showcased a number of events that took place over 2014. Google celebrated the last day of the year with an animated recap of some of this year’s top trending searches, including the 2014 World Cup, the Philae robotic lander, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and Flappy Bird, with a shout-out to the Mars Orbiter Mission.
