Google Panda Updates Go On Holiday Vacation?

Google Panda RestingIt has been a while since we found much shuffling around Google Panda, which is not normal being that it most recently has been updating at least every few weeks or so.

Glenn Gabe said on Twitter he has not seen a Panda refresh since October 24th and @Marie_Haynes agreed. The last one we thought was really Panda related was in mid-October.

Truth is, Google has been known to give Panda a rest around the holiday seasons, starting back in December 2011 where Google tweeted:

This has been the case for the most part around most algorithms since the Florida update in 2003. But with the case of Penguin's ongoing optimizations, I guess they didn't care there? Although, since December 6th, I have not seen Penguin shuffles.
