Happy 13th Birthday Google!

To celebrate their birthday the Google doodle of the day is of a birthday party scene.  Complete with decorations, party hats, gifts, cake, and of course the company logo.  Google has put a new doodle on the home page since 2002 as a way of celebrating.

According to an article on Mashable, today is not the actual date of Google’s birthday but this is the day they celebrate this year.  The exact date Google celebrates this occasion has changed over the years, according to the company, “depending on when people feel like having cake.”

Google has come a long way from when Larry page and Sergey Brin, two Stanford University students, first developed the idea in 1996, then known as BackRub.  Goggle is one of the world’s largest and most significant companies around today.  It will be exciting to see where the company is thirteen years from now.
