Google Lets It Snow on Home Page

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Search giant Google (GOOG) on Monday rewarded holiday Web surfers in the mood for Vaughn Monroe's classic Christmas tune Let it Snow by delivering an Easter Egg that makes the results screen snow and frost over after typing the song's name.

Following the search "let it snow" , snowflakes begin to fall from the top of users' Web browsers as the screen suddenly becomes foggy so as to replicate frost on a window.

Once it becomes too difficult to read anything in the browser, a "defrost" button pops up that wipes away the winter weather. Users can also simply click and drag their mouse cursors to manually clear the browser's frost.

As for Google's season's greetings, "let it snow" also turns up two of the most popular versions of the holiday favorite: Dean Martin's 1966 recording, which has nearly 8 million views on YouTube, and Frank Sinatra's interpretation from 1950, which has some 2.8 million hits.
