There’s this brand that has kept its clean homepage unaltered for years, but redesigned its logo whenever felt like celebrating a holiday. And only last year, there were over 270 occasions worthy of Google’s celebration.

It all started back in 1998, when founders Larry and Sergey thought of a fun way of letting the Google users know that they were ‘out of office’ to attend a festival (read more about the doodles’ history here).

Today, the doodles are yet another mark of the brand’s creative spirit and an integrated part of the Google experience, but also a great way of spreading the word about unique holidays celebrated all over the world. Here is a small selection of our favorite doodles from this year and 2010. Browse the whole collection on
