This is all quite shocking, surely, the best way not to discriminate would be in recognising days that mean something to a large percentage of the population, regardless of their religion, beliefs or personal interests. By not recognising certain days it is discriminating, maybe they shouldn't doodle at all if they're going to themselves decide what is appropriate and what is taboo. Google is an international entity, which imbodies the nature of the internet, all cultures and origins are involved and welcomed to this boundless media, why therefore is google introducing walls that the majority of its users do not welcome. Personally I enjoy seeing the doodles, which I can investigate or I can ignore,either way what is the harm of teaching what is important to others.
