Is there a size limitation on this forum, all of those GIF previews don't work.

The blank ones haven't been uploaded yet. George has just taken a guess at the URLs of the remaining Doodles.

A vertical strip of trim appears in the SERP next to the ads for some search terms. For the term "Christmas" there is a strip of colored light bulbs. In past years the trim varied with search terms.

There is a debate between the christians who prefer "Merry Christmas" and the other who prefer "Happy Hollidays".
http://www.seroundtable.com/archives/021393.html

In your local culture, do you prefer one or the other ? or you don't care ?

Here in France, there is no real difference between "Joyeux Noël" and "Joyeuses Fêtes", and I think many non-christian people can say "Merry christmas" without any problem.

I´ve noticed that too, but personally I don´t care. Here in the Netherlands Fijne feestdagen (Happy Holidays in Dutch) Prettige kerstdagen (Merry Christmas) both are and can be used so far I know. I've never heard a discussion like that here, I think people nag to much,

I like this holiday doodle a lot. I think that having the text kind of in the pictures is really cleverly done :)
