Google Doodle Celebrates Valentine's Day, George Ferris Birthday: Valentine's Day Doodles So Far

    Wow! Today is February 14 is Valentine's Day, but, Google has made an effort to remind its visitors of another event. The search engine giant has demonstrated an interactive doodle to commemorate Valentine's Day and the 154th birthday of George Ferris - the man behind the original Ferris wheel commonly known as 'Giant Wheel' in India.

    The interactive doodle on the Google hopmepage depicts 10 love stories and has an amusement part in the background with two Ferris wheels forming the two O's in the Google logo. There is also a roll-coaster than represents the G, a kart ride resembling the second G (looks like 8), a tower showing L and a merry go round depicting E.


    If you observe the center of the doodle, there is a heart, which shows the love stories of 16 different animal characters when clicked. As the heart shaped button is pressed, the Ferris wheels will rotate and a picture of a couple with their love story appears.

    There is a Rabbit and Dolphin making a perfect love story, a Bear and Octopus and also a Fox, who has no date this Valentine's Day and is watching TV at home. The animals involved in the doodle are Tortoise, Elephant, Squirrel, Crow, Frog, Hippopotamus, Tiger, Horse, Monkey, Chameleon and Swan.

    Valnetine's Day 2013 doodle is a rare one as Google has combined two events in a single doodle.

    Now, talking about George Ferris, he is an American engineer famous for creating the original Ferris Wheel for the 1893 Chicago World's Columbian Exposition. The directors of the exhibition wanted a monument for the fair that would surpass the Eiffel Tower and then Ferris came up with his idea of a wheel which visitors would be able to view the entire exhibition.
