Google thinks today is "Holidays"
google ^ | 12-25-12 | duckworth

Today is Christmas Day. Hanukkah ended nine days ago. New Years Day is seven days from now. Yet... for some explicable reason, Google thinks today is "Holidays." In their description of their Christmas day graphic, Google writes "Happy Holidays from Google."

Well thanks, Google that's very nice of you. Very inclusive.

It makes them look so petty and small minded. And, worse, they don’t even get why it is offensive

Yesterday a kid at check out said to me, Happy Holiday and I responded,” which one Christmas New years 4th of July,you need to be more specific”.
Dumass didnt even get the point although most in line behind me did.

"The joke is on them."

You'd best let them know about this oversight ASAP so they can take immediate corrective action!

They'll have to remove the "Holi" from "Holiday", and then their site will simply read: "Happy ...Day"!

Wow... It must really be hard sometimes to be a liberal that takes their beliefs in Political Correctness to a near religious level in itself.

While in America, we can't shutdown anything on Memorial Day, even for just an hour or two to honor those who died preserving freedom.
Even worse ... the store clerks who wish you a Happy Memorial Day. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ....

Google: A creepy Burtonesque landscape; Holidays

Bing: a cabin evocative of the manger with a link front and center to a search page with Christmas in every link.

Its a shame that Microsoft feels compelled to abandon private-oriented business PC’s for tablets and the ‘cloud’ BS. At least they finally dumped NBC.

Yeah, Google puts "Merry Christmas" somewhere else but they don't do it here. Typical. They get a chuckle out of offending people who they don't agree with and this is just another example of it.

The money from people using their search and buying Android stuff keeps rolling in, though, so they figure as long as people don't care enough to stop giving them money they don't really care much at all.

“Holidays” end on December 26th. New Year’s eve CLEARLY is not included in the phrase “Happy Holidays” because stores’ “post-holiday” sales start December 26th, not January 2nd.

Someone should tell them the Good News that Jesus loves them too!

since “ happy holidays” originates from “happy high holy days”, it’s just semantics. why are these days holy? Jesus, or course.

Wait until the find out what “goodbye” means, “God Be With Ye.” They’ll never be the same. :-)

It’s notable that this style of graphic is very popular in the illustration world.

It’s an infantile , kindergarten art style that has become prodigious.

I believe it reflects the juvenile ,won’t-grow-up mentality in recent generations which is particularly strong on the “creative” community.

Yes. The graphic is all presents wrapped up. Materialistic, commercialized, heathenistic ba$tard$.

Merry Christmas! everyone

and Peace on Earth

The government schools in my state think it is “Winter Break” It's posted outside nearly everyone of their prison-like buildings.
