A Special Logo For Google’s 13th Birthday – Mazol Tov!

Happy Birthday Google! Today, Google turned 13 years old, the day a boy becomes a man, at least in Judaism. To celebrate the important birthday, Google has a special logo with a cake and birthday hats, looking like an old-fashioned child’s birthday party setting.

Historically, there was some confusion as to when Google was born. Was it September 14th or the 27th? For years now, Google has settled on it being the 27th. Here is a look back at some of Google’s birthday logos:

Google did not make birthday logos for its earlier birthdays. For more history on Google’s birthday celebrations, see this post.

    My favourite birthday doodle is probably the 8th because of the cupcake! Think they should have an interactive one next year – those are the best!
