The last day of the year arrives and practically the whole world is celebrating.It is a moment to review what these last 12 months have broughtand, also, to consider new purposes for 2019. At this special date, known as New Year's Eve, we have also wanted to add the giant search engineGoogle. For this, the US multinational has designed a very special doodle.
In animated doodle,Two elephants prepare to receive the New Year.In the absence of five minutes to midnight, the characters, wearing party hats, are dedicated to inflating balloons and eating popcorn.
"At twelve o'clock at night, the old comes out and the new comes in," says Google. "We will sing that song 'Should old acquaintance be forgot'(Scottish song used in solemn actsand that is related to the New Year celebration). "But there's no need to worry about our purple friends, the elephants never forget."
