As always, when there is celebration like this, Google pays tribute by changing it’s logo to something unique and related to the subject. Today, when you mouse over Google’s logo, you will see that today is Gioachino Rossini 220th Birthday and Leap year. This is today’s logo in relation to Gioachino Rossini 220th Birthday.
Who is Gioachino Rossini? Most of the time, I don’t know the people Google pays tribute not until they change the logo and find out who is this person and why is Google celebrating their birthday as well? Gioachino Rossini birthday is today. He was an Italian composer, wrote 39 opers. (wikipedia) He was the most popular opera composer in history. Since I am not really a fan of the opera, I didn’t know about that, if not for Google paying tribute to special people, I would not have recognized them. :he: Google really knows how to respect and be thankful to people. :givelove:
