Instead of celebrating the holidays with fancy animations or interactive graphics, Wednesday’s Google doodle—the day before Christmas Eve—offers a Doodle you could actually print out and play with: collection of paper dolls.
Designed by Doodle artist Robinson Wood, the graphic appears in North and South America, Oceania and certain parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. Doodles tend to vary by region, which is why Monday’s Doodle celebrating the solstice featured melting popsicles (for if you’re in the southern hemisphere, where summer begins) or a snow globe (for if you’re in the northern hemisphere, where winter officially started). Clicking Wednesday’s Doodle takes you to the search results for “‘Tis the season!'”
Google has shown it’s in the holiday spirit in other ways recently: Christmas, Kwanza and Hanukkah all have special search results pages, and the company also has a dreidel game (search for “Play dreidel”) and a Santa Tracker page.
