No Google Chanukah Decorations In Search Results

Every year, Google posts decorations in the search results for the holiday season. This week, starting last Saturday night, Hanukkah started. But if you search Google for [hanukkah] or [chanukah] you typically would see the search results dressed up with decorations.

Typically banners of Jewish stars, or dreidels or menorahs to symbolize the holiday.

But this year, there are no decorations.

Here is the decorations from the past years:

This dates back to 2005! But nothing today or this week, at least not yet.

Happy Chanukah to those who celebrate it!

I should note, if you search for [festivus] you get the pole:

Looked for this year's Hanukka decoration too since saturday - but nothing. Did you notice the "Festivus" easter egg? I think it went live around 6th December :

What's up with that! How can they forget to do Hanukkah? They still have six days left to correct...let's hope they do. And Happy Hanukkah Barry!

Maybe it was just an oversight because they are busy in Tel Aviv working on the awesome Campus Tel Aviv and honoring Israel as a 'start up' nation. Pretty cool if you ask me:)

I am sure it was an oversight. Was hoping to still see it before Chanukah is over. :)
