Google Easter Egg Brings a Snow Storm to Your Desktop

By Jason Fitzpatrick on December 19th, 2011

Google, no stranger to clever search Easter Eggs, has a simple little HTML5 trick that brings a blizzard to your desktop.

Visit Google, search for “let it snow”, and watch as a flurry of snow flakes frosts over your browser pane. Don’t worry, hit the “Defrost” button when the flurry is over and you’ll be able to see the entire screen again–although as long as you stay on a Google hosted page a light snowfall will continue.

Have a holiday-themed Easter Egg to share? Sound off in the comments.
