Did Google's Happy Holidays Logo Get More Christmasy With 'Tis The Season

With all the complaints this year and last year with Google's Happy Holidays logos, Google may have decided to change it up a bit.

Today, when you hover over the logo with your mouse, instead if it saying "Happy Holidays from Google" it says "'Tis the season!" I believe, that although it doesn't specifically say Christmas, the slogan, from what I understand, gives off a Christmas holiday feeling. No one says 'Tis the season when referring to Chanukah.

Here is the logo with the new alternative text:

Google  'Tis The Season

Why not come out and say "Merry Christmas"? It IS after all, Christmas day for hundreds of millions. If it were any other holiday Google would have been much more explicit. This is sad. The tail really does wag the dog on Google.

"'Tis the season," "Merry Christmas," Happy holidays," Happy birthday, Jesus," "Happy birthday, Santa Claus"....Does it really matter what a little hover box on a Google doodle says?
