Google has sent out a stock fob-off reply to all those that noticed its flagrant disregard for England by missing St George's Day. Google has only ever marked the day ONCE (circa 2002) but somehow St Patrick is worthy of note EVERY year!
Thank you for your note. We enjoy celebrating holidays at Google and are sorry we missed one that's special to you. As you may imagine, it's difficult for us to choose which events to celebrate on our site. We have a long list of holidays that we'd like to celebrate in the future. We have to balance this rotating calendar with the need to maintain the consistency of the Google homepage.
Some holidays that we haven't celebrated in the past will be rotated into our holiday doodles for future years. Please remember you can visit any of our doodles at http://www.google.com/holidaylogos.html
We appreciate your taking the time to write to us.
