There's a new animated cartoon on Google (www.google.com) today to celebrate Thanksgiving. In it, the second "o" in "Google" is a turkey, and when he realizes that it's Thanksgiving, he looks around and gulps, then holds up a picture of himself and dons a disguise (hat, sunglasses, suitcase) so nobody will recognize him and have him as their main course.

Here's a link to Google's explanation of the doodle: https://www.google.com/doodles/thanksgiving-2017.

Today, Google (http://www.google.com) is celebrating the winter solstice (first day of winter and shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere) with another animated cartoon. In it, a cute little mouse leaves his underground house to go ice skating. When he returns home, he's covered with snow and looks like a giant snowball. After shaking off the snow, he goes back outside and skates some more.

Google (https://www.google.com) is celebrating the 2018 Winter Olympics with its "Doodle Snow Games" series of animated doodles, a new one each day.

I found a good article describing the "Snow Games" doodles. It also contains a three-minute video at the top, with highlights of many winter Olympic games from the past. If you want to read it, here's the link: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/go ... technology.

Note: All 17 doodles can eventually be viewed here: https://www.google.com/doodles/series/s ... d=69382847
