Google is celebrating this year's December Winter Festivities with a series of Doodles about a pair of penguins' holiday to visit their warmer-weather relatives.
December global festivities mean family and holiday travel, and Google is marking the season with a new series of interactive Doodles about a family of birds traveling south.
Two penguins, a “pair of slippery-footed siblings” introduced with a set of seasonal candles, are “excited to spend time with their warm-weather relatives,” a toucan and a parrot, according to Google. 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.
The Doodle’s final panel includes a past photo of the reunited family, as well as a pile of wrapped gifts that hint at the series’ next installments — Dec. 25, Christmas Day, Dec. 31, New Year’s Eve, and finally, Jan. 1, New Year’s Day — that will pick up the penguins’ adventures as they travel to warmer climates to enjoy the December global festivities together.
How is Google marking Christmas 2017?
Google are beginning the countdown to Christmas with a festive series of Doodles, beginning on Monday, December 18.
Interactive, animated images feature penguins and parrots arranging to spend the big day together.
In the first of the cartoonish designs, displayed on the search engine's homepage across much of the world, we see the penguins packing their suitcases for a trip to see their parrot pals.
A series of boxes marked 25, 31 and 1 in another image hint that the follow-up Doodles will appear on some of the standout dates in the Christmas holiday period.

Teasing their festive concept, Google said: "The festive season is here and this pair of slippery-footed siblings are excited to spend time with their warm-weather relatives!
"Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks to see what kind of fun this feathery family has in store."
Another Doodle teases when we'll learn the next stages of the birds' tale
Why is Christmas Day on December 25?
Christmas Day is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, but there is actually no official date of the birth recorded in the bible.
By the early-to-mid fourth century the Western Christian Church placed Christmas day on December 25.
It is thought that date was chosen as it is exactly nine months after the Christians believe Jesus was immaculately conceived, on March 25.
