New Google Doodle: Leap Year and Gioachino Rossini 200th Anniversary

With two big events on today, the Google site is now sporting a brand new doodle highlighting the presence of these two events two. One is the Leap Day which normally makes it mark in the calendar once in four years while the other event is the 200th birth anniversary of the Italian music composer Gioachino Rossini.


This greenish doodle from Google sports four frogs on the front, having fun. While one is busy at the piano composing great tunes for this great day, his mate is found leaping high with great fun. On the other hand two other frogs are busy at the right side of the doodle which serves as a barber shop. While the customer frog gets a clean shave, the owner of the shop shows a mirror from the back.

Unlike the animated doodles that Google brings, this one is static. Clicking on the doodle will take you to the search page with the query Gioachino Rossini quoting the biography of the great composer and albums of his life. Though the great man is no longer in this giant world, he lies in the hearts of his fans and Google.

While the music composer is the proud owner of lots of musics that he composed, none can match his most played Opera play titled The Barber of Seville. This comic was played in the year 1816 and is yet popular. If you might have noticed, it is that play that got featured in this doodle.
