People who now type “Diwali” into search will see an animated earthen lamp that is already lit, as part of the result.

Google often treats its users with cool animations and hidden features that can be activated with specific keywords.
If one were to search for characters from the popular sitcom series Friends, for example, each search result will display different floating animations.
For the Chandler Bing character played by actor Matthew Perry in the 1994 show, Google displays the show’s signature BarcaLounger. By clicking on the icon, Chandler’s chick and duck come out of the show to pace on the screen.
For the character of Monica Geller, a sponge soaked in soap appears on the screen and wipes everywhere. On the show, Geller, played by actress Courtney Cox, was obsessed with cleanliness, which seems to have inspired the search engine’s hidden feature.
