If you go to Google.com today your mouse will get a surprise.
The company has created a new Google doodle made up of bouncy balls.
When you move your mouse close to the logo, the balls all runaway in different directions. Move your mouse away and the balls come together to form the logo.
Others say the doodle is to celebrate Google's 12th birthday, which traditionally is not today. Google's birthday either falls on September 4th (the day Google was incorporated), 7th (when the company opened its doors in Menlo Park, Calif.), or 27th (the day Google usually celebrates its birthday).
Happy birthday, Google! Or at least happy birthmonth!
