Today is President's day, you wouldn't believe the number of US based businesses that are closed today, including the post offices, banks and courts. But like every year, Google does not show a logo for the day. Just like 2009's President's Day and 2008's President's Day, Google and Yahoo do not have special logos.

This year, they have an excuse, it is the 2010 Winter Olympics, which is what Google, Yahoo and Bing are sporting logos for right now. To see those logos, see our post.

Here is the President's Day message from Ask.com:

Ask.com on President's Day

And here is from the Search Engine Roundtable:

In addition, there are some complaints in the Google Web Search Help forums that Google China didn't have a special logo for the Chinese New Year.

Hey if they can replace Rememberance Day, a day in which is dedicated to remember the millions who sacraficed their lives with a picture of the muppets, then all hope is lost for the future of Google doodles!

It's respected as Veterans day in the U.S. and Google has a logo.
