Google wished its users a happy new year with a new Google Doodle Friday morning, a fireworks-studded logo with part of the company name replaced by the Roman numerals MMXI, or 2011.

Searches for "mmxi," "gmmxle google" and "roman numerals" were all trending hot this morning as people looked for more info on the logo. "MMXI" was also trending on Twitter this morning.

Another top search this morning was "auld lang syne lyrics," which you can find here.
