Google Doodle celebrates the festival of Holi with a colourful animation

Google Doodle celebrate popular occassions, so on the festival of colours we have an interesting animation.

The Google Doodle shows a group of revellers running across the Google logo, while sprinkling colours. With one fellow waiting till the end to colour the last alphabet of Google again. The end result is a colour-sprinkled Google logo, almost like a graffiti work.

Holi, the festival of colours, is celebrated in India and many other parts of the world coinciding with the arrival of spring. The celebration is vibrant, involving people painting each others faces with colour, either dry or mixed with water.

“The joyous event, which takes place in India, Nepal, and other countries around the world, traditionally marks the triumph of good over evil. It also gives family and friends a chance to simply come together, enjoying a spirited “Festival of Colours” that undoubtedly lives up to its name,” says the Google Doodle page.

The mobile app has got a slight variant of the desktop Doodle for today. Instead of a group of revellers running through the Google logo, you just see the logo being sprinkled with multiple colours.
