The Many Faces of Pegman
To use the Google Street Views feature in Google Maps, you move what Google calls the Pegman (he's [[xref: http://maps.google.com/help/maps/streetview/newcities/index.html|visible in this video]]) to a specific spot. When you do, up pops the Street View window. To keep things interesting, Google dresses up Pegman on special occasions. For instance, during the week of Christmas, Pegman becomes a snowman; at Halloween, Pegman dons a witch costume; on Valentine's Day, Pegman stands on a heart instead of his usual green circle; and whenever Pegman sets foot on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, California, he becomes a tie-dye-shirted hippie.
