    And the "G" isn't always in the recognizable google typeface. Looks crappy.
    Eschew obfuscation, espouse elucidation.

    I'm just betting that everyone who complains here about Google's Christmas tribute is going to continue using Google search. Personally I thought it was way more creative than just a typical cliche Christmas tree and Reindeer logo.

    I think I'm going to boycott Google. They honor every other stupid day on their site, but want to pretend that Christmas doesn't exist?

    I think it's time that people who are bothered by this make our voices heard, just like the whiners who are exorcising Christmas from our cultural landscape have done.
    Yes...all three of you are really going to hurt Google...go for it.
