New Delhi: Today is Christmas Eve and Google is celebrating the holiday season with a doodle on its homepage.
The doodle depicts a fun-filled white winter scene with two kids riding a one horse open sleigh on a snow covered field with three leafless trees in the background.
Christmas Eve is an integral part of Christmas festivities; people start celebrating Christmas from this day with families and communities gathering for dinner in the evening and churches holding special services including Midnight Mass.
Google has also included a link on its homepage to track Santa`s journey around the world as he goes about delivering gifts to children.
“On Christmas Eve we’ll be proudly showcasing a preview of Santa’s dashboard - the technology that powers his sleigh during his around-the-world journey,” said Google. “Santa’s dashboard - featuring the latest and greatest in Google Maps technology and sleigh engineering - will allow you to follow his progress around the world, and also learn a little about some of his stops along the way.”
