Hans Christian Andersen Gets 5 Google Logos / Doodles

Hans Christian Andersen, a famous children's author and poet from Copenhagen, Denmark would be 205 years old today - if people lived that long. He was born on April 2, 1805 and died on August 4, 1875 at the age of 70. Since it is 205 years later, Google decided to not just show one Google Doodle (or logo), but instead, they showed five of them. To see them, go to Google and just click on the logo. Eventually, Google will take you to a search result for [Hans Christian Andersen].

Here are the five Google logos for Hans Christian Andersen:

205th Birthday of Hans Christian Andersen

205th Birthday of Hans Christian Andersen-1

205th Birthday of Hans Christian Andersen-2

205th Birthday of Hans Christian Andersen-3

205th Birthday of Hans Christian Andersen-4

Now, if you can name which doodle represents which of his stories, then you get a gold star!

Today is also Good Friday and there are some Christians who are upset that Google is not showing a logo for this day, as opposed to a logo for Hans Christian Andersen.

Hi Barry, Request you to not upload the images on flicker as flicker is not accessible in many organizations.
