As the world is all set to celebrate New Year's Eve 2018, Google is marking the occasion with a frisky doodle showing two baby elephants tossing balloons and chomping on popcorn.
A Google Doodle is a thematic motif used by the search engine giant on its homepage to mark special occasions. For this, Google gets its designers otherwise even invites designs from people to modify its logo with a reference to the subject. Earlier, Google has used doodles to observe prominent people, their achievements and many more.
This year's Google Doodle for New Year's Eve 2018, shows two cartoonish purple elephants. The animated graphic shows one of the two elephants blowing balloons with its trunk and blowing it across towards another elephant. The second cute elephant, in the meantime, tosses pieces of popcorn from a bag into its mouth. Above them, the wall is adorned with festoons and a clock that is just about to strike midnight signifying New Year's Eve 2018.
December 31 is celebrated all over the world as New Year's Eve. Fireworks, jamborees, and celebrations of all kinds happen on the occasion as billions of people around the world wait with bated breath for the clock to strike midnight.
More than 24 times in the world (since there are as many time zones spread across the globe) people count down to the moment of midnight to greet the New Year's Day.
Earlier this year, on New Year's Eve, Google had marked the occasion with a doodle featuring a family of birds - penguins and parrots.
