On 19th June 2011, on the lovely occasion of Father's day, what did you gift your Dad? Well, Google gifted all the dads an adorable necktie. A yellow color tie with white polka dots on it seemed simply classic to me. The tie reminds you to give your wise old guy a call from wherever you are to make his day special.

8th May 2001, being Mother's day, Google made sure that it also celebrated the day with as much zeal as possible. The Google Doodle on Mother's Day was not very complex. It was simple, elegant yet beautiful, just the way a mother is. A lavender color periwinkle was the focal part of the doodle. It was a tribute to all the wonderful mothers out there. It was also a little reminder to all those who had forgotten to wish their mothers.

January 14, 2011 was the day of Makar Sankranti, a festival celebrated in India, which marks the end of the winter season. It is also known as the festival of kites since creatively shaped and enthusiastically colored kites are flown in the air as a sign of celebration. The Google Doodle on this day comprised beautiful kites which flaunted exotic colors and the excitement that fills the place.

New Year's Day doesn't really require an introduction. 1st January 2011 was a ray of hope for millions. On this day "MMXI" (the Roman numerals for 2011) were used to replace the letters "oogl" of the word "Google". Teamed up with fireworks and colors, Google Doodle once again managed to create magic online.

Again three doodles were created, but unfortunately I had to pick only one. On 23rd November 2010, Google Doodle showcased an example of a traditional Thanksgiving meal placed between the logo to wish Google users a very Happy Thanksgiving.

15. Halloween

31st October 2010 is the day when all the evil spirits come out in the open. Google honored this day with a couple of story-telling pictures. The pictures showed some horrifying spirits who were scaring away children while they were tricking and treating. The case was now with Scooby Doo and gang to solve the mystery. It was both interesting, creative and funny.
