Thanks -- never saw them do anything like this before. I'll bet they have and it just slipped by.

Just noticed this. Do a google search for Christmas. Haha, nice touch from big G, am I right?

If you do a google search for Christmas (no quotes, just Christmas), you'll see the north pole along google's sponsored links. Seems to work for Google UK as well and Google DE. I think thats a pretty nice little search "easter egg". I wonder how many other ones are out there?

Interesting - not seeing it in this part of the UK yet but will try tomorrow.

what i find strange is that they claim to never manipulate any results manually.. obviously that's not true and this proves it..

This doesn't tell me that they have manipulated any listings...just cleverly brought in a vertical line separator ( /images/cane2.gif ) next to the right side vertical Adwords displays when you type in Christmas (without quotes)...and the line separator is a big candy cane....
clever and really dresses up the page a bit for Christmas..
