Recently, Google has included it’s Easter eggs as a part of its 20th celebration. So, what are these Easter eggs on Google and what is the use of these virtual Easter eggs? There was a big list of the Easter eggs that were included by the Google engineers having the hidden meaning for the enterprising searchers who would give some of their time to hunt these down.

For example, when a user makes a search query on Google about Xmas or Christmas then this search would be triggered with a string of colourful lights just below the search bar. And if you search for Hanukkah during that time then you will see a list of stars of David under the search bar.
