According to Wikipedia, a doodle is:

a type of sketch, an unfocused drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes.

An example is:

Google Doodles are the logos / icons that Google displays on its home page and change them on regular basis. They are designed  in order to celebrate any particular event or a holiday.

The first Google Doodle was to celebrate the Burning Man Festival of 1998. The doodle was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed.

I have always been fascinated by Google Doodles and recently I came across a Google Doodle gallery where we can find all published, catalogued, tagged and filed doodles by Google.

Have a look: Doodlewatch

According to him:

Doodlewatch is a gallery website where we collect all doodles of Google.

I’ve always been fascinated by those “cute and funny logos” that Google occasionally published on its homepage. I used to save every logos I was able to find and for those I wasn’t, I searched for them in the web but seldom I could find what I was looking for. I couldn’t find any website that had either all the doodles and it was up to date.

Here you can browse Google doodles from a specific country or from a particular archived month.

I find it interesting. You too have a look.
