Winters arrvied, Christmas is upon us, in the spirit of the festivity, Google now has a new easter egg on Google.com search results pages — Search the words “let it snow” and you’ll have a hard time checking the search results.

Google uses a JavaScript animation that adds some snowflakes and covers the entire page with snow.

Watch your browser fill up with snow, and then skate around with your mouse, where your browser acts just like a frozen lake, showing the path your cursor has taken.

The search results are not clickable during the snow fall, in order to get the results clickable, you will have to click “dfrost” button.

You can also click anywhere on the page and move your mouse to “defrost” the page or draw something. Click the “+” button and you can share the Easter egg with other Google+ users.

Here are some screens and the video of the Snwy Easter egg:

Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched Menorah or Hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. The typical Menorah consists of eight branches with an additional raised branch. The extra light is called a shamash and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest. The purpose of the shamash is to have a light available for use, as using the Hanukkah lights themselves is forbidden. [Wikepedia]
