Today is one of the most celebrated days of the year for Christians, Easter Sunday. And while search engines like Bing and Ask.com have special themes up for Easter, Google has a logo for the birthday of Cesar Chavez.
Don't get me wrong, Cesar Chavez is a remarkable and honorable person to remember. But if you saw the number of complaints in the Google Web Search Forums now, you'd scratch your head.
Here are some of the hundreds of complaints:
Why not have bunnies and eggs decorating the Google search, at least. I know you'd never have a Jesus decoration on the search page. But Cesar Chavez? WHY? On Easter of all days.
Cesar Chavez on google on Easter morning, google sucks, I am looking for a new browser.....people what other engines can I use.?
Get some basic respect, Google. Posting a picture of Chevez on Easter makes me feel uncomfortable and creates a "hostile web environment". Please replace Chevez with an Easter-theme.
Why did you take Easter Away?
Now those are just a few of the comments and the ones that are PG-13. Some of them are pretty out there and I rather not quote them here. You can read them yourself in the Google Web Search Forums.
So who was Cesar Chavez? Cesar Chavez was an American farm worker, labor leader and civil rights activist, who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association. He was born today 86 years ago and died on April 23, 1993.
Now if you are really upset with Google over not having an easter logo you can either complain in the Google Web Search Forums or in the no Easter logo at Google again post where there are hundreds of comments or switch to a new search engine.
Yahoo doesn't have any logo but Bing and Ask.com do. Note, Ask.com uses Google for their ads, so you may want to stick with Bing if you do not want Google to make any money from you. Dogpile is an other option but they are an aggregator of search results.
