Today when I first read about the Let it snow feature that Google have built in to their search engine as a sign of their support for the holiday season I though it were a hoax. I used Internet Explorer 9 to do the search for the term “Let it Snow” and ended up with a normal Google result.
Then I thought I maybe need to wait for it to start snowing. I waited for quite some time for the “Let it Snow” Snow to start snowing on the Google Search results as promised but to no avail. Finally I decided to use Firefox. The “Let it Snow” feature immediately started. The longer you wait the more snow will fall onto your screen, and eventually your whole screen will freeze up.
For us here in Sunny South Africa and in the Southern Hemisphere Snow in Christmas is something that just doesn’t happen. While many people in the Northern Hemisphere hopes for snow this time of year so that they can have a True white Christmas. We have also tested the “Let it Snow” Google feature in Google Chrome and it works 100% in the Google Browser.
When your screen fills up with snow you can use your mouse as a scraper to clean some of the snow off your screen. The “let it snow” search feature from Google sure did bring the Holiday Spirit to thousands of people worldwide today. We here at 3D Car Shows always love it when Google does something to warm our hearts and the “Let it Snow” campaign brought the excitement of Christmas into the offices today.
We have included the Lyrics of the original Let it Snow song. Maybe if we all sing it together this Christmas we will have a White Christmas.
Oh the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we’ve no place to go, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
It doesn’t show signs of stopping, And I’ve bought some corn for popping, The lights are turned way down low, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
When we finally kiss goodnight, How I’ll hate going out in the storm! But if you’ll really hold me tight, All the way home I’ll be warm.
The fire is slowly dying, And, my dear, we’re still good-bying, But as long as you love me so, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
