December Global Festivities
December Global Festivities: Google on Christmas Day continued its series of festive, interactive holiday Doodles with a heartwarming family reunion.
The seasonal Google Doodle series is all about two penguins, a “pair of slippery-footed siblings,” who are “excited to spend time with their warm-weather relatives,” a toucan and a parrot, according to Google. The first installment in the December global festivities series, published Dec. 18, showed the penguins inside their icy igloo, making plans with their tropical relatives and packing their bags for a holiday.
The Christmas Day update shows the penguins happily running toward their toucan and parrot friends, gifts in hand. In a later frame, “this colorfully feathered family can’t w ait to sink their beaks into a delicious feast” as they gather around a tropical holiday table, Google writes. (Don’t worry, there’s no turkey to be found.)

The festive season is here and this pair of slippery-footed siblings are excited to spend time with their warm-weather relatives! Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks to see what kind of fun this feathery family has in store.
As every year, Google is showing a series of entertaining Google Doodles over Christmas. This year the fun begins on December 18th, almost a week before Christmas Eve. This year it is about Mr. and Mrs.
Pinguin, who want to spend a warm Christmas holiday It’s the first Doodle in a whole series. On the first day, Mr. and Mrs. Pinguin decide to escape the cold and go on holiday with their Uncle Tukan. They pack their bags and set off.
This story will be continued in the coming days. As you can see in the Doodle, it goes first until December 25th – and then the days New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day follow. One can be curious what else is coming.
Interestingly, it is apparently “just” about a holiday trip, not a certain holiday, for example Christmas. Apparently, Google wants to stay out of religion as a globally operating company. In the English-speaking world, it is therefore referred to as “December Global Festivities”.
The doodle appears in most countries worldwide, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Indonesia, India, France, Italy, Greece, Great Britain, Canada und the United States of America.
Correction: The original version of this story misstated the direction penguins would travel to reach tropical climates. They would likely travel north, not south.
