Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! As has been Thanksgiving tradition, Google posted a special Google Doodle to mark the holiday in the U.S., with this year’s interactive and shareable logo arriving a couple days early.
Thanksgiving is the longest running holiday Google celebrates in the form of Doodles. Burning Man may have been the first Google Doodle, but Thanksgiving was the first holiday celebrated by Google in 1998, and it has become an annual tradition in the 13 years that have since followed.
While Search Engine Watch staff is off today celebrating the holiday with family and friends, we figured we’d give readers a taste of how Google’s Thanksgiving Doodles have evolved through the years. So here’s a look back at all the Thanksgiving Doodles, from 1998 up until this year.
Along with these three logos, which appeared over three days (November 23, 24 and 25), when you clicked on the Google Doodle, author and chef Ina Garten shared six "simple yet delicious" recipes, including turkey and pumpkin pie.
