Here are some previous discussions of the candy canes and other holiday trim next to the ads on the SERP.

Thank you Tony. But I think I didn't make myself clear. My fault though.

I wanna know how to call the "place"(or the line?) between search results and the AdWords section.

Is there a specific name for it or it's just the line that divides search results and AdWords?

When I try WebSonic.nl's search I get mistletoe, not a santa.

This year the graphics are slightly different for the same keywords as last year. Link to last year's graphics: http://blogoscoped.com/forum/118605.html#id118627

'Kwanzaa' had 2 candles per line last year, this year they are only 1.

'snowman' was more detailed last year, this year its doesn't look as clear.http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3266/3106062626_97b6b157ea_o.png

'holiday lights' triggered a string of christmas lights last year, right now it doesn't trigger anything.
