It’s a small thing, but for those searching for December holidays this year will get a new look when searching on mobile or desktop.

We’ve seen Google previously theme ‘Holiday’ searches before, and it seems to be targeting the three main holidays that take place around this time: Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and of course, Christmas.
Christmas:

Hanukkah:

Kwanzaa:

Unfortunately other holidays – Saturnalia, Ramadan, Easter and sadly, Festivus don’t work, although you do get a metal pole for a Festivus search on desktop.

It’s a neat addition to search and just another one of those neat things we like to see from Google. Check it out yourself now.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
