Will there be a Google Easter Doodle in 2012 Here at 3D Car Shows we love to keep our eye on the latest Google Doodles. In the last couple of months we try to guess who, what and when the next Google Doodle appears on the Google Homepage. It has become an interesting game and we have been able to predict some of the days and events that Google Honors with their Google Doodle correctly.
This year we are predicting that Google will once again have a Google Doodle announcing Easter this year. Upon investigation and looking at the Google Doodles Library we discovered that the last time Google announced Easter with their Google Doodle were in 2000.
“Google Easter Doodle 2000”
Happy Easter 2000 Google Doodle
In 2000 Google reminded people about easter with their Happy Easter Google Doodle. The Google doodle featured the normal Google Logo with some slight changes. The normal “G” in google were changed to a purple/pink color and the “o’s” were changed to easter eggs. With an absence of 11 years we may once again see a Google Easter Doodle this Easter from Google. Let’s hold thumbs!

Google Easter Eggs
If Google only have had one Google Easter Doodle why are the Google Hacks and surprises called Easter Eggs.
According to Wikipedia Easter Eggs are:
“A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke, or feature in a work such as a computer program, web page, video game, movie, book, or crossword. The term was coined — according to Warren Robinett — by Atari after they were pointed to the secret message left by Robinett in the game Adventure.
It draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many Western nations as well as the last Russian imperial family’s tradition of giving elaborately jeweled egg-shaped creations by Carl Fabergé which contained hidden surprises.” – Source Wikipedia
Popular Google Easter Eggs
At the end of December 2011 Google had several “Easter Eggs” one of the most visited Easter Eggs at the time were the “Let it Snow” easter egg. The let it snow easter egg allowed people to see snow fall on Google Search Results when they visited the Google Let it Snow easter egg. The Let it snow easter egg is not working anymore but we have done an article about the Google Let it snow feature which you can visit to read more about the
easter egg. There is also a video available on the Let it snow page allowing you to still see the Google Easter Egg.
What is Easter
Easter is the most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church, celebrating the resurrection of Christ and held in the month of April. Usually Easter is between the 4th of April and the 8th of April. Easter is a special holiday to celebrate because remembering Christ’s atonement and resurrection brings hope and faith. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that He suffered and died for each of us. I know He was resurrected and lives. Easter is a beautiful holiday when we can remember Jesus Christ and worship Him as the Son of God and as our Savior and Redeemer.
If you are a Christian we here at 3D Car Shows wish you a Happy Easter!
