New Year’s Eve is on the last day of the year, December 31, in the Gregorian calendar. It is one of the largest global celebrations where people gather in public venues to dance, eat, drink, and as the clock strikes midnight, watch or light fireworks to mark the New Year’s Day, January 1. The New Year is few hours away and the search giant Google is celebrating New Year’s Eve 2018 with an animated doodle. The animated doodle features a pair of purple, baby elephants, wearing a yellow and a green party cap each, spiritedly waiting for the clock to strike midnight.
