Google Snubs Easter
Kathryn Jean Lopez is miffed that Google doesn’t have a special alternate logo for Easter like they do for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and other events. She’d even settle for a bunny or a colored egg. Any acknowledgment at all.
Easter is the holiest day of the year for Christians, who believe Christ rose from the dead and absolved humanity for our sins (with various strings attached, depending on denomination). One’s faith would have to be fragile, indeed, to require a sop from Google. And, frankly, if I believed in the Easter miracle, I’d be rather offended if a search engine trivialized it with Peter Cottontail.
(As it turns out, by the way, there is a Google Easter search available. It was the first result I found by Googling “Google Easter.”)
