Answer:

The first Google doodle was put up when the Burning Man festival took place in 1999. Google founders put it up to say that hey were going off to the event and will not be available for support if their servers go down :)

    The event is the Burning Man Festival.
    I think google started putting up customised google Festival Logos since then.


  4. A Nony Mouse

    Google changed it’s logo for the first time to tell people that Larry and Sergey would not be able to take support calls since they were going to be away at Burning Man in the Nevada desert

    The first Google Doodle was a reference to the Burning Man Festival of 1999. Google started customizing its logos from then.

    Burning Man – an event to mark the spontaneous act of radical self-expression.

    2.The event is named after its Saturday night ritual, the burning of a wooden effigy.
    Black Rock City is the name of the temporary city created by Burning Man participants.
    The second one is the satellite image of Black Rock City showing the familiar “C” or semicircle pattern.

    A neon-tubed Man, from the festival, 1999 Black Rock City,is the name of the temporary urban phenomenon created by Burning Man.

    The first google doodle – 1999, reference to burning man festival. the first doodle designed by Larry & Sergey, to notify users of their absence…

    1) Google logo
    2) The Burning Man festival, held at Black Rock City,USA every year, since 1986.

    1) was changed to a doodle for the first time in 1999. The first Google Doodle was a reference to the Burning Man Festival of 1999. The doodle was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence ( they were busy attending the festival) in case the servers crashed.Thats how the tradition of Google Doodles started.
