    Neat. Go to www.google.ca (or com) and type "let it snow". See what happens.

    It appears to work (in a slightly different manner) for Google using every country's Internet code. I tried it for www.google.com.sa (Saudi Arabia) and www.google.bf (Burkina Faso), and
    after I hit the "Defrost" button
    the same thing happened! :rofl:

    Fun! I was just lamenting the lack of snow outside.

    It depends on your browser...ie, it doesn't work on IE but it works on Firefox.

    Doesn't work on Safari, either.

    Try "Hanukkah."

    After trying (and failing) with IE, I did get it to work on Chrome.

    Works on Firefox and Safari for me. That's cool. Better on my computer than in the driveway to be shovelled.

    It isn't supposed to work on IE or Opera. Chele615, that is a fluke.

    I don't know if it was discussed here, but last month the net was all googling "do a barrel row".

    I just did that. I didn't even get it all typed in... :lol:


    I love that if you type in Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa you get a lights or candles or something. Festive!

    Works fine on IE for me - all three computers. Doesn't work on Palm OS.

    It uses a script, so if your computer has a script blocker running, it won't work.

    It doesn't work on IE for me at work. Nothing much does. I like what they do to make me smile.
