On September 27, 2016, Google celebrated its 18th birthday. The search engine that is the most popular and most used site has completed 18 years of service to the world, and shared its joy with an animated Google doodle on the site. The company was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998.

The adorable animated doodle showed G in ‘Google’ trying to inflate balloons for the birthday celebrations and flying up along with them.

Google 18th BirthdayInitially, however, the birthday of Google has been celebrated on four different days! The company lists its corporate birth date to be September 4. But since the first birthday doodle was used on September 27, 1992, it has stuck around as Google’s birthdate.

Nonetheless, the world is grateful to Google for making us smarter and making our projects and seminars more informative. Thanks, Google!
