Valentin Pletzer spotted and posted on Twitter that Google doing what I think might be a new knowledge panel, one that replaced a featured snippet. This is for a search on holidays.

If you search for [holiday 2019] Google doesn't show you a featured snippet anymore, it shows you an answer based in the state you are in.

I see it for New York, because that is where I am. But you might see it for a different location or nothing at all. Some countries just show featured snippets still.

Of course, this is a different query but it the closest thing I could find.

I guess this is now pulled from a licenses source and no longer needs to be cited or linked to by Google...
