    Is Google prejudiced for not acknowledging Festivus?

    Why did Google not have a Festivus image on the 25th? I find this very offensive and blatantly bigoted against people of faith (and Seinfield fans). Same goes with Kwanza too. Stupid politically correct religion haters!

    They could've just had a picture of an aluminum pole. That would've been fine for the holiday. The bigots...

    Because Kwanzaa and Festivus are more popular than Christmas? This is stupid.

    Google has been infiltrated by the Reich-Wingers of Doom!

    This is the Christian Right taking away our freedoms! Hurry, someone, contact the ACLU! The government will know what to do!

    Because Festivus is on the 23rd.

    Big fan of Festivus, eh?

    I would wager it is because it was a holiday created on a comedy show, therefore no one takes it seriously.

    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.

    I find this very offensive and blatantly bigoted against people of faith (and Seinfield fans).
    So sorry.

    Did you ask Google to put a Festivus image up on the 23rd? Did anybody?
