Doodling Our Way To Google Commemoration Day

Do you know why September 7th is special? It’s Google Commemoration day! The tool we’ve come to use on a daily basis for everything from a simple search to asking how to keep track of your keys is celebrating another year, and we’re happy to help commemorate this special day!

To do so, we’ve chosen our Top 10 Commemorative Google Doodles of all time!

1. PAC-MAN’s 30th anniversary: What’s better than going to do a quick search and finding that you can actually play PAC-MAN on Google? Arguably one of the most fun Google Doodles, PAC-MAN was a hit!

2. Pi Day: A math teacher’s (or maybe a pie eater’s) favorite day! This Doodle was one to post in classrooms all around the world.

3. Robert Bunsen’s 200th Birthday: An animated Doodle, you can watch this Bunsen-themed Google Doodle send different colors throughout the doodle’s various test tubes!

4. Lucille Ball’s 100th Birthday: Another animated Doodle, this one was for all the I Love Lucy fans. Click on the Lucille Ball Doodle, and you can watch what’s likely the most well-known I Love Lucy clip ever!

5. Les Paul’s 96th Birthday: Arguably one of the best, you could actually PLAY this guitar Doodle and record your own song!

6. John Lennon’s 70th Birthday: This Google Doodle looked ordinary when you went to the website, but all that changed when you hit the PLAY button. Google made a short animated video of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” After watching the video, you were automatically directed to the search results for John Lennon on Google!.

7. Dr. Suess Birthday: One of the most loved storytellers of all time, this Doodle had characters that many people, old and young alike, would recognize from their favorite stories.

8. Louis Braille’s Birthday: To commemorate the founder of the Braille system of writing, Google did this Doodle in early 2006.

9. Leonardo Da Vinci’s Birthday: In memory of one of the most well-known and celebrated artists of modern history, Google created this Doodle featuring some of Da Vinci’s most prolific work.

10. Michael Jackson Doodle: In honor of MJ, Google released this Doodle shortly after his passing.

Those are our favorites, but we want to hear your favorite. Help us commemorate this special day by letting us know which is your favorite Google Doodle!

ZOMM Celebrates Google Commemoration Day

“I dunno, just Google it.” — A phrase undoubtedly uttered multiple times a day, all around the world. Whether it’s to find out movie times for a date or the number of cell phones lost in a year, people all across this planet turn to Google to answer their simple, bizarre and most puzzling questions.

Today, September 7th, is Google Commemoration day, in honor of the creation of Google on this day back in 1996. To celebrate this life changing (and distraction-creating) tool, we’ve compiled a list of 7 Fun Google facts You (probably) Didn’t Know:

  1. Google’s First Tweet, “I’m 01100110 01100101 01100101 01101100 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101100 01110101 01100011 01101011 01111001 00001010,” is binary code for “I’m Feeling Lucky.”

  3. The Google search engine receives about a billion (1,000,000,000) search requests per day from all over the world, including Antarctica.
  4. Google employees, or “Googlers,” come from diverse backgrounds. A former neurosurgeon and rocket scientist both hold positions at Google HQ.
  5. Due to the abundance of snacks in the Google offices, employees are known to gain the “Google 15.”
  6. The Google HQ is dog-friendly. Cats, however, are not welcome.

  8. While users rarely use the “I’m Feeling Lucky Button,” during trials they admitted they didn’t want it to go. Users get comfort from the button, so it’s sticking around.
  9. Instead of hiring a mowing crew, Google rents goats, a herder and a border collie to help cut down the amount of weeds and brush.

Now, to honor this special day, try this:
• Visit www.Google.com
• Type in “ZOMM”
• Click “I’m Feeling Lucky.”

Happy Googling!
