Google is back with a new Google Doodle to celebrate the New Year’s Eve today! The doodle features the roman numerals “MMLXI” which is equivalent to the number “2011".
New Year’s Eve or Old Year’s Night is observed on December 31, the final day of the Gregorian year, the day before New Year’s Day. New Year’s Eve is a separate observance from the observance of New Year’s Day.
In Roman Numerals, MMX is 2010 (M=1000 & X=10). To make it 2011 you have to add 1 to it. Which is “I” in Roman Numerals. There, you get MMXI. That’s it!
