"on localized Google front pages too " => why did you wrote that? It's the same for years ;)

I mean that it was spreaded to localized pages too. Maybe there are new forum readers too :) Thanks, it's not needed in the title field of the post.

And the alt text is 'Happy Holidays 2008!' this year.

[put at-character here]Juha-Matti basically, the ALT text changes from language to language.
here in France we got the usual "Heureuses fêtes de fin d'année!", while in Spain they get "Felices fiestas te desea Google".

Nicely drawn, this doodle series. Would be more interesting if there hadn't been an overflow of Google logo doodles this year :)

[ OT] Philipp (or anyone else), have you ever seen the links change in the Google homepage?

I don't really like the christmas logos this year. I prefer the simpler Google Doodles :(

I just don't like the really detailed Google Logos. I prefer the simple cartoon ones. It dosn't have anything to do with whats happening in this set :)

I have no idea what went on in Google's doodles.

They were nice enough but... too detailed.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
