If you use Google, you’ve most likely seen some of their cool “Google Doodles”. These are artistic images that take the place of their usual lettered logo. Most of the time they have to do with a special holiday or a memorable person or event. No matter what the doodle is, you can always find the letters G-O-O-G-L-E in there somewhere.
