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.
