On Saturday the web giant rolled out its latest joke which had a very seasonal nature.
If you typed in the words 'Let it snow,' snow flakes started gently falling from the top of the screen.
It's snowtime: By typing the words 'let it snow' in the search field the gentle flakes start falling
But before the searcher collapsed in exasperation at another computer problem the cursor would wipe away the snow, before adding 'Bye :)' in the bottom right hand corner.
There was even a 'Defrost' button instead of blue 'Search' button.
When the joke was taken down, it could be still be played by searching for 'let it snow easter egg.'
An easter egg is an intentional hidden message or an in-joke inserted into a computer programme or web page.
