Google and Yahoo don't care about the Memorial Day

The two Internet giants, Google and Yahoo, didn't celebrate the Memorial Day as we expected because there was no commemorative doodle placed on their official pages. Every once in a while, the Mountain View and the Sunnyvale companies are replacing their famous logos with new ones meant to celebrate certain holidays. However, both Google and Yahoo refused to modify the logos and kept the original ones, showing a little indifference to the Memorial Day.

"Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May (observed this year on 2007-05-28). It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it expanded to include those who died in any war or military action. One of the longest standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911," Wikipedia describes the holiday.

One of the latest holidays celebrated by the two companies was Earth's Day, when both Google and Yahoo created amazing logos to honor it. However, the most impressive doodle ever used by the Mountain View company was published on Valentine's Day and showed quite a weird Google logo. Although it was meant to show a strawberry coated in chocolate, the resulting word was "Googe" instead of Google, making the Internet publications think that the company's employees made a serious mistake. The company's officials responded to the criticism the next day, saying that the logo showed the original name of the company without any mistake.
