Another Weird Holiday Graphic
The Animal Trend Continues

In case anyone sees anything different than myself (my homepage is google.us), the New Year's holiday graphic depicts a beaver reveling in an alpine sunrise with an ostensible shrine of sticks at his (or her) back.

Anyone have any ideas about Google's new animal theme and newly alternative representation of holidays? The last holiday graphic displayed a cat and mouse plugging in and powering weird pastel Christmas lights--I think. Is Google intentionally avoiding more predictable holiday representations, or is it just doing a terrible job?

It's conclusive proof that google has been taken over by pagan devil worshippers. :p

They use the animal theme a lot for a lot of their logos, and for the new year logos it always has been an animal theme bar 2005.

I believe the idea is that cutesy little animals are safe and non-controversial. Ironically, just prior to seeing the beaver in the logo, I read a news item about the damage Canadian beavers (Castor canadensis) are doing in Chile, so maybe they're not so safe... (giant, clever rodents, with teeth that never stop growing - they'll take over the world if we aren't careful).

Happy New Year,
Stefan (in Canada)

Well seeings as beavers don't inhabit Australia, I found it very impersonal seeing the logo on google.com.au ...

Surely they could have spared the cost of one share price in wages to change that beaver to a koala and the pile of sticks to eucylptus leaves...!

It really is amazing what we learn here - WonderWorld should get a prize for seeing that 2006!

I was so concerned that the beaver had stacked his campfire wood up wrong, it would never burn right! And I thought he was yelling some expletive about where the heck did he pack those waterproof matches...

And now I feel so stupid that I didn't realize his campfire was the shape of a 6.

I'll bet only 1 in a million people can see the 2 in the mountains and the 6 in the sticks, and figure it out.

WonderWorld, maybe you can decipher the Google Patent for us, please?

It's suggested by the green highlighting, but it's pretty vague eh?

And folks, those aren't the Alps, they're the Rockies :-)
