Google is sending mixed messages with their happy holidays logo. There are a few issues with the happy holidays logo on Google.

Here is the logo:

Google's Happy Holidays Logo

(1) It is 8:45am EDT and there is no special logo for the holidays on Google.com yet. At least, not for me. But it is on most the other Google properties as of the morning of December 23rd. I am thinking they have rolled it back on some properties but I am not sure.

(2) Depending on which Google property you go to, Google will give you a different message on the logo. One may say "Happy Holidays from Google!" The other will say, "Have a Merry Christmas with Google!"

Google Australia says Happy Holidays from Google!

Google Happy Holidays

Google Korea says "Have a Merry Christmas with Google!"

Google Merry Christmas

I am not sure why Google is giving mixed messages with the logo and why the logo is not yet live on Google.com but it is what it is.
