The popular search engine Google celebrated its 23rd birthday on September 27, 2021. The occasion was marked by an animated doodle in the tech giant’s signature style. A quick visit to the Google home page will show you the doodle, which features a chocolate cake covered in chocolate frosting and rainbow-colored sprinkles. The number “23” was mentioned on the top of the cake, and the cake candle replaces the letter “L” in Google. The cake then comes alive and removes its top layer to bow in gratitude. Take a look at the doodle here.
Two computer science students created a search engine in their dorm in 1998.

Google was founded on September 4, 1998; However, founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin chose to celebrate the company’s official birthday on September 27, as it was the iconic day they announced the record number of pages indexed by the company. The company is now one of the best-known search engines in the world, led by Indian-born CEO Sundar Pichai. Interestingly, Google will be offering special offers and discounts to customers in select European countries as part of their 23rd birthday celebrations.
The tradition of making Google Doodles began as early as August 1998, with the first featuring the Burning Man Festival. Since then, the Google doodle has become an iconic way to celebrate any event or happen across the world. Several doodles created by the tech giant feature food and health events and achievements.
