Google's new 'let it snow' trick to frost up your search results

December 18, 2011 - Washington

Internet giant Google has added a seasonal touch to its search engine, where all of a sudden a snow storm hits the screen on typing 'let it snow'.

Type in those three magical words when you visit Google and you'll be treated to a new Easter egg.

Snowflakes will fall from the top of your screen and slowly cover Google's search results with a light coating of snow.

Use your cursor as an ice scraper to draw in the "frosted glass" effect, or click on the search "Defrost" button, The Washington Post reports.

This is perhaps the coolest Google search trick since "do a barrel roll," which produces a vintage video-game effect.
