Today an hour ago, Google launched their holiday logo. Typically Google will launch the series on December 21st, but held off to launch it this morning as one logo with 17 logos within them. Here is a static image of the logo:

Google Holiday 2010

Here is a video of the logo:

As you can see, each image takes you to a special search query. The queries include St. Basil's Cathedral, Acropolis, Buche de Noel, pierogi, Great Wall of China, Mt. Fuji, Indian dance styles, Sahara desert, chili pepper, oud, Sydney Harbour, Venice gondolas, Nepal, Chilean vineyards, African kanga, Henna lamp, and Up on the housetop.

The Wall Street Journal has the story behind the logo reporting Google started working on it in June, with five designers and 250 hours of man hours. At first, the logo was suppose to be 17 different logos released over time throughout the days before the holiday. But Google decided to pull them all into one logo and make it interactive.

Christmas is just around the corner. Happy Holidays!

We will make sure to post the other search engine logos tomorrow morning.
