    Some of the Mac websites alter their logo for holidays and other events. I think it'd be cool if MR did this too :)

    Examples:

    That would remind me too much of Spymac, which would NOT be cool AT ALL.

    Heh, I like that pumpkin with the Finder logo on it.

    As for themed logo for MacRumors....I suppose it could have some little holiday decor around it. But I think arn like to keep it simple. Although I have seen some holiday themed avatars around lately. :)

    I would say the ones everyone celebrates, Halloween and the "holiday season" not needing to get to specific but maybe we can have some holiday lights and maybe a candy cane or 2. and who doesn't like a Jack O Lantern.:)

    I like that MR is consistently simple.
    Holidays (such as halloween) are not always so internationally recognized. I'm seeing that it's not a very big occasion in the UK like it was in the US. It gets tricky when a place assumes its holidays on everyone.

    So what if not everyone who VISITS the website celebrates a given holiday? They don't own the website. It's up to the website owners to decide if they want to put up a holiday themed logo, so it's their perogative and will probably be determined by what holidays THEY celebrate.

    So, how about it arn? Which holidays do YOU celebrate? ;)

    Not precisely, I just meant it's a bigger occasion there. No one gets to take the day off of work or anything. There's very few occasions where an american can take the day off of work and not have their job be in serious jeopardy for it. the US is not always what it's cracked up to be.

    Holidays off in U.S. for a state worker in SC) :D is about 11 days. If I work on those days I get regular pay and overtime pay. so it is 2 1/2 times my normal pay.

    Love working on those holidays!!!

    Oh I forgot, if you want to do the holiday thing. Just change your avatar (if you have one).

    Some people don't celebrate Christmas at all. I quit saying have a merry christmas. I now say have a nice holiday.

    At a movie theater last weekend I saw a trailer for The Nativity Story. And it said Coming for the Holidays!

    To be politically correct, they couldn't say "Christmas" for a movie about the birth of Jesus!?

    I am a Catholic too, but I have and do work with people of the jewish faith, budism. I respect them and their religion. That is what Catholism teaches us to have respect for other religions. For the people that I do know celebrate it I wish them a Merry Christmas but strangers on the street no.

    But do they get upset to see a Christmas Tree or to hear carols. The way everything is so commercialized does it really matter to wish someone a Merry Christmas.
