Google representatives have been in the webmaster forums helping webmasters with their SEO and webmaster related questions all Christmas eve and day.
Of course, Google's lead spam fighter, Matt Cutts reminds us on Twitter that no matter what, spam fighting never rests:
@joehall the spam fighting never stops, even on Christmas. Hope you're having a good one.— Matt Cutts (@mattcutts) December 25, 2013
One example is that Google penalized Rap Genius last night/this morning for link schemes.
I am sure the spammers don't like it but some do.
