Google turned 13 Tuesday, and the search engine celebrated its big day the same way it has every year since 2002 — with a special anniversary doodle.

This year’s effort, a staid, retro birthday party scene, doesn’t quite seem befitting of a newly-minted teenager. But, then again, 13 is pretty ancient in Internet years.

It’s a testament to Google’s popularity that whenever they shake up their home page with a doodle to commemorate a special event it’s big news. Wish Google a happy birthday by checking out this complete list of every Google Doodle. We’ve posted a few of our faves below. Happy birthday, Google!
