Google celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with celtic Doodle

St. Patrick's Day Doodle

St. Patrick's Day Doodle

March 17th is traditionally St. Patrick’s Day. Nearly every year since 2000 Google celebrates this day with a doodle on the search-engine-homepage. This year the doodle designers decided to draw the doodle in a „celtic style“. Nice in my eyes. And of xourse the main color is green. Green as the wide irish grasslands. As allways I made a video to document this amazing doodle – including the St. Patrick’s Day-doodles from 2000 to 2011.

About Saint Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It commemorates Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.It is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century, and has gradually become a celebration of Irish culture in general.

The day is generally characterised by the attendance of church services,wearing of green attire and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating, and drinking alcohol,which is often proscribed during the rest of the season.

Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others. Today, St. Patrick’s Day is probably the most widely celebrated saint’s day in the world.“ Source: Wikipedia

I think Google will show this doodle in these countries. Did you see all the circles in it? Perhaps Google wants to promote his GooglePlus circle-concept ;-)

Irish beer…

Don’t ask me why, but many people think about beer when they talk about Ireland. Ok, the following video shows why…

Do you like Guinness? Or do you prefer a lighter beer ?

Here again the doodle as a single image:
