    Because advertisement is a form of commercialism and that is contrary to what Festivus is all about. Nobody should ever feel pressured to observe Festivus. In fact, Google was showing its respect to Festivus practitioners by not having an image.

    Kwanzaa takes place from December 26th until January 1st.

    They never put up a Quanza image - that means they're biased towards Quanza and hate Christmas! OMG

    [quote=Ethereal;1058451962]Because Christmas is celebrated by billions of people all over the world, whereas Festivus is a made-up holiday by a character on a sitcom.

    You did not know the correct date of Festivus, so you clearly don't take it seriously. You bastard.

    Actually it was a ploy by the Illuminati to piss off the "Happy Holidays" people. Oh boy, you caught us.

    They never put up a Quanza image - that means they're biased towards Quanza and hate Christmas! OMG
    That argument would be considerably more convincing if you spelled Kwanzaa correctly.

    Kwanzaa takes place from December 26th until January 1st.
    Kwanza is another made up holiday for some group that felt left out.
