Trick or treat? Google got into the spooky spirit by creating a time lapse video for its Halloween doodle this year. Unfortunately, the doodle isn't visible in India, but we have the video below. It's pretty neat. It follows the Halloween custom of pumpkin carving to create the Google logo in the form of lit up carved gourds. It even briefs the history behind the Halloween festival, saying that Halloween comes from the words, “All-Hallows-Even (-ing)”, which is a day before “All Hallows Day”. All Hallows Day is usually referred to as All Saints Day and is celebrated on November 1st. The festival comes from old Irish traditions and folklore. In addition to the US, Halloween is also celebrated in many countries in Europe, particularly since the 1890s. Watch the video below for more.
To see the process with which the Doodle was created, watch the video below. The Doodle made for some heavy duty carving and a lot of pumpkin gutting. Check it out.
