I only caught the Google Doodle on New Year’s Eve 2012, which I thought was nice, only today realising it was a clever two-parter. The one I saw was below, which is the party:
The very next day (New Years Day 2013) showed the updated Google doodle portraying the clean up and seeming reflection upon the ended year. Very nice indeed.
A little explanation of the part phase of the Google doodle can be found via Websonic.nl which can be seen below (click for larger)
Happy New Year folks!
