If you go to Google and search for The Qingming Festival you will see a special easter egg in the search results. Try searching [qingming festival] on any Google property, even Google US and you get a special background at the top and the bottom of the page.

The background is also interactive. The top shows fish jumping out of the pond with splash effects in the water. The bottom has the man's hand moving.
