"Do yourself a favour and go to google.com"
We've all said it or done it at one point during our social-networking active lives.
And to tell you the truth, I always get a kick out of them; be it because I know who/what they're celebrating or I don't and therefore learn something new about someone/something.
It's a win/win situation that's oh-so-easy on the eye and a pleasant surprise!
The first Google Doodle was in honor of the Burning Man Festival of 1998. -- Wikipedia

And let's not forget the animated ones. Notably (ie. my personal favourites): John Lennon's 70th birthday, Valentine's Day 2012, 30th Anniversary of Pac Man (we all took advantage of a free pacman game), Martha Graham's 117th Birthday (also pictured above) and Lucille Ball's 100th Birthday*!
