Meanwhile, Google has decided to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a Doodle representing the ancient Celtic story of The Children of Lir. The story tells of the children of an Irish King who’s children were turned into swans by their evil step-mother and aunt, who became jealous of the King’s love for his children. Although a very old Irish legend later versions tell that, after 900 years, St. Patrick changed the children back into human form.
