Google provides an excellent search engine, which I have been using exclusively since I discovered it a few years ago, and also hosts the platform for this blog, Blogger.com.
A nice detail about Google is how they regularly modify their logo to reflect special dates on the calendar.
So I was a bit mystified when I had a look today, Christmas Day, and saw a happy kangaroo couple with their offspring. Moving the mouse over the image, I read: "Happy Holidays from Google."
I have written the following email to Laura Ainsworth, corporate communications coordinator:
It would have been a nice touch for the roughly 2 billion of us Christians out here if your logo had made some reference today to the event that we are celebrating -- the birth of Jesus.
So I have been wondering -- what's with the kangaroos? What, if anything, do a happy kangaroo couple and their newborn have to do with the Blessed Virgin Mary, St Joseph and Jesus?
Might I ask that, on the second and 10 subsequent days of Christmas, Google change the logo to reflect that it is Christmas?
