The Google Doodle begins Christmas celebrations featuring penguin and parrot pals”

It's been a long wait claiming that winter is coming. but now, it's finally here!

Google, on Monday, announced the beginning of the festive season with a series of interactive Doodle.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google, came up with the concept of doodle after they tried to decorate the company's logo to mark their attendance at the Burning Man festival in 1998. The adorable slideshow doodle features two cute penguins packing their bags and gifts as they get ready to go meet a pelican. It gets better as you swipe through to the right to find that there is a story unfolding within the three pictures. The first installment in the December global festivities series, published today, shows the penguins making plans with their southern relatives and packing their bags for a tropical holiday inside their icy igloo. It also includes a series of boxes marked 18, 25, 31 and 1, highlighting the key dates when the follow-up Doodles will appear on Google's homepage.

The penguins and parrots are also shown exchanging phone calls in one of the slides while another slide shows them reading mails and opening giant suitcases to explore their gifts. The photo reveals that the happy birds are actually a family - how sweet is that?

According to Google, two penguins, a "pair of slippery-footed siblings" launched with a bunch of seasonal candles, are super thrilled to spend some time with their "warm weather relatives"-a toucan and a parrot".

Google asked in its blog post to remain tuned for learning the nature of the fun the feathery family has in store.
