The first Google Doodle was in honor of the Burning Man Festival

A Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepage that is intended to celebrate holidays, events, achievements and people. The first Google Doodle was in honor of the Burning Man Festival of 1998, and was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed. In January 2010 the first animated Doodle was posted honoring Isaac Newton.
