Google Can’t Be Bothered To Acknowledge Easter, Celebrated By Hundreds Of Millions Worldwide

On other days, like Earth Day, Halloween, or holidays of other religions, we find Google putting up some kind of motive at their search page to mark the day.

Here’s what Google.de has today for Easter, which is celebrated by over a billion people worldwide:

Google
Nothing, quite obviously.

In fact according to a comment from reader FrankSW below, Google has ignored Easter since 2000.

In the future we ought to keep in mind what Google thinks of practicing Christians.

Forget Google…HAPPY EASTER everybody!

      Why annoy a group that could blow up your place just to placate folks who really won’t bother to do anything that hurts your bottom line? Is this rocket science?

    Happy Easter, Pierre. Yes, Google memorizes Earth Day, the ritual of the Forces of Darkness, but here in Amsterdam the bells still are sounding as a memorial of what some consider an impossible event.

    There is so much happening (historically speaking) around Easter, and the Christian date for easter changes from year to year every year. There are lots of events that do not show up on Google’s Doodle ffs.

    Happy Easter. 🙂

    “Happy” Easter? IIRC your savior was nailed to a cross at this time. What’s there for you to be happy about?

      Peter. Don’t make me laugh. You’re actually described in the gospels:

      And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

      You don’t recall correctly, He was nailed to the cross Friday. He rose today, and that’s why we celebrate.

    It is of concern to me that the search providers are all of the same ilk. I have recently deinstalled Mozilla Firefox from all my machines because of their anti-freedom of speech practice. I guess Google is probably the same but waiting for a publicity moment to reveal it’s true colours.

    Happy Easter, Påsk, Resurrection Sunday to all those who know what it means.

    No Easter message from Google here in Australia either, however today they remember Charlotte Brontë’s 198th Birthday.

    Wish that was all I had to do was sit and worry what specific search engine engineers think of different holidays. Who cares? Celebrate it if that is what you do! Not everyone believes/thinks the same. And yes I celebrate Easter! I could care less who doesn’t. It’s on them.
