Google is spreading the holiday cheer with Friday's Google Doodle.

The interactive Google logo, which today is outlined in Christmas lights, features colored boxes under each letter. When you click one of the boxes, the entire background turns black, Google's "G" is replaced by a snowflake and you hear one of the notes from the beginning of "Jingle Bells."

Clicking all of the corresponding boxes allows you to play the beginning of the song, and when you click the last box (it doesn't have to be in any order), "Jingle Bells" plays. The logo transforms, with letters become a dancing snowman, a ringing bell, and a dancing Santa head, among others.

But Google doesn't stop there. When the "Jingle Bells" rendition is over, you're taken to a page that shows you the search results for "happy holidays."

The search giant is famous for its whimsical changes to the company logo to, in the words of Google, "celebrate holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous artists, pioneers and scientists."

Past Google Doodles have celebrated the birthday of Muppets creator Jim Henson, guitar legend Les Paul and Egypt's historic elections.

Earlier this month, Google announced that it had revamped its Google Doodle site so users could continue to enjoy the doodles when they're no longer posted on the homepage.

But enough about the doodle. Turn up the speakers on your computer and get Googling!

Note: At around 5:20 p.m. EST on Friday, the logo's interactive features were unavailable. Later in the evening, however, the interactive features were working again. Let us know in the comments if it's working for you.
