There are dozens of complaints from Christian Google users with their dissatisfaction over the wording of the Google Holiday logo. In short, the complaint is that Google is saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.” Christians are asking why Google is saying “Happy Holidays” when no other holiday overlaps with Christmas this year. Chanukah was earlier this month and the other holidays don’t seem to fall out during Christmas, so why not say it as it is?
Here are pictures that illustrate the ‘politically correct’ holiday message from Google:
You can see the logos at google.com/logos/holidays-2009.html.
Here is one of the many complaints in the forum:
For the entirety of Google’s history (including this year) they put up a variety of Christmas-themed logos between approximately December 22 and December 25, but they say “happy holidays” and not “Merry Christmas”!!
What other holiday occurs between Dec. 22 and 25?? Why must Google be so politically correct? “Merry Christmas” is one of the most popular greetings in the world! This is ridiculous, why is Google forcing me out of the Christmas spirit?
