Let it Snow, Google!

Sunday, December 18th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Here’s a neat Easter egg that’s making the rounds right now. Did you know that if you go to and type in the search string let it snow that you’ll be given a wintertime surprise?

It’s true!

So, head over to everyone’s favorite seasonally-centric search engine and give it a try for yourself!

Note: You must hit Enter to complete your search – Google instant search does not work with this tip.

Also: This tip works in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox – Internet Explorer was unresponsive.

    You didn’t mention that once the snow begins to accumulate on your screen, you can clear it away by holding down the left mouse button and moving the mouse.

    It was cool. I left the screen for a couple minutes and when I came back I was in a blizzard and had to defrost. Thanks for my morning chuckle. Merry Christmas everyone.
