This Sunday St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in different countries including the UK and Canada, Australia, and the United States. Like in previous years Google will celebrate this day with a special doodle and this year for the first time Google will celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with a simple animated doodle. In the logo you can see five kids, one boy and four girls who are dancing and jumping.

You cannot do anything with the doodle, it’s just the animation on the homepage of the search engine. Google is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day since 2000 which an exception in 2003 when no doodle was placed. In 2009 the winner of the Doodle 4 Google was used and in 2011 there were two doodles, the first logo celebrating the day was later replaced and reused in 2012. Also YouTube celebrated St. Patrick’s Day one time, this was in 2009 and Orkut celebrated the day in 2010. All the doodles used in the previous years by Google can be seen here.

A video of the doodle you can expect tomorrow below.

    Not a fan of this doodle usually love Google’s doodles but as a Irish man I think this is a bit of a piss take. Get it together Google, you are more than capable of being far more creative than that.

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
