Google Gives Everyone A White Christmas With ‘Let It Snow’ Trick
Google's Yuletide brigade brings charm and delight to the browsing experience by triggering a virtual snowfall.

As the spirit of Christmas is in the air and the big day draws ever closer, it is often the little magical charms that bring us heartfelt Yuletide joy. Google’s newest trick, “Let It Snow,” offers just that; searching the phrase using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari enables a gentle snowfall on a computer screen, eventually building up into a thin, window-like frost. Users may interact with the illusion by wiggling the mouse left and right to hasten the frosting, hold and wipe the mouse sideways to “wipe” the frost, and clear the whole frosting altogether with the press of a button.
