Google welcomes the new year.

Google is saying goodbye to 2013 with a brand-new Doodle. 

This one features a virtual disco with the "4" from 2014 patiently waiting for his chance to get on the dance floor, where his friends are ostensibly twerking to "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)." 

In case you forgot what other trends broke in 2013, Google features a handy link to its annual Zeitgeist, which breaks down the top searches from the past year. 

As we've noted, people had a lot of questions in 2013. Mainly, "How to tie a tie?" and "What is twerking?" People also spent a lot of time searching for information on famous people who died, including South African civil rights icon Nelson Mandela and "Fast and the Furious" star Paul Walker. 

There are tons of lists to read through, but don't worry if you're too busy popping champagne to get through them. Google has summed up in 2013 in handy YouTube video form.
