Creative and Amazing Google Doodles of 2011

Google started occasionally adding decorations to its logo for holidays and to celebrate occasions like its own anniversary and birthdays of some of the prominent persons around the globe. These logos are called “Google Doodles“. These doodles are today a part of many of the internet users. You could see a lot of google users playing with the logos.

Ever wondered when and how the first Google Doodle came into existence?. Well, the first Google Doodle was made in 1998, which was actually an “Out Of Office” message to everyone in case the servers crashed. The founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, had to attend The Burning Man Festival but they were concerned about the crashing of the servers. They were also concerned about who would the people contact if the servers went down. Thus they built the logo which was a message that the founders were “Out Of Office” in case something happened. Thus started a string of Doodles in the following years which have been loved by many people around the globe.

Mostly the doodles have a timeline of 24 hours, but Les Paul’s Musical Google Doodle has found its way to get its own homepage with the logo there for lifetime. Google Doodles are built specific for countries and also some Globally Google Doodles are also built.
