Google has started to post their Happy Holidays series of Google Doodles today, well, tomorrow but today is tomorrow in Australia. On the 24th of December, you will see a Christmas eve logo and on the 25th you will see a Christmas day logo from Google.

Here is the Christmas eve logo from Google:

Here is the Christmas day logo from Google:

Here is the day after Christmas logo from Google:

Google's Happy Holidays - Christmas 2013

I already spotted one thread with complaints that this is not Christian enough because on hover over, it reads "Happy Holidays from Google" instead of "Merry Christmas" but for some reason that thread was deleted. I think it looks Christmasy... Last year, we had a lot of complaints about the Google logo not being Christmas focused enough. Truth is, there is no other holiday overlapping Christmas this year, so why not go all out Google? Update, we now have some complaints and we are covering the Google Happy Holidays complaints here.

I am not sure if Google has a 3rd image in their Christmas holiday series, I was only able to spot these two.

Time to be embarrassed by a vocal minority who assume that they think for the entire country. Bring on the hoards of self entitled know-nothings who think that not having something worded in the exact way they want is some sort of grave offense to...something. Barry, post a story about it the doodle tomorrow and watch your visitor count sky rocket as the angry-because-we-were-told-to-be crowd comes looking for somewhere to rant in unison. Ack ack ack ack!

Where did you get the second picture (December 25) from? That one looks a lot more Christmasy than previous Google doodles from previous years (except 2011), I like it. Merry Christmas, folks!

People, get a life. "Christmas" is a federal holiday. Enjoy it and if you need to complain, suggest a solution.

By all means, Merry Christmas. We are still One Nation Under God. The divisions will tear this country apart. Any one unhappy, go back to where you came from.

It's hot in more than half the planet in late December (from the tropic of cancer south). Especially Australia which was mentioned.
