Let it Snow? Google offers Christmas special

Search for ‘Let it snow’ on Google and you’ll get a surprise. Well, not a huge surprise. You can probably guess what happens. But still, it’s a nice touch. You’ll also get a little surprise if you search for ‘Hanukkah’.

The ‘Let it snow’ trick is just the latest example of little tricks that are built into Google, the most famous of which is probably the ‘barrel roll’ that literally barrel rolls the page. There are probably more which haven’t been widely publicised yet.

Google isn’t the only company to offer snow on its website. WordPress has been doing something similar on its blogs for a few years now.
