Google is notorious for doing things very seriously. But still, they do try to add some sugar to searching in the form of Doodles and special search tricks.

Google uses Doodles to celebrate important events and birthdays of famous personalities like artists and scientists. But did you know Google celebrates your birthday too?

Just visit on your birthday and you will be in for a surprise. Google will show a special birthday doodle for you with a personalised birthday message appearing when you hover your mouse over the doodle.

Google picks your birthday date from your profile, so you need to be logged in to see the special doodle.

The feature has been around for a long time, but most of us miss it because we might not visit on our birthdays or use the browser search bar instead of going to Google's home page.

Now I hate spoiling surprises and have done it already, but at least you won't miss to check your special doodle!!!
