Why isn't Google celebrating Nikola Tesla's birthday?

I'd like to know why exactly google isn't celebrating Nikola Tesla's birthday? Google's homepage celebrates every possible holiday, birthday and occasion possible, yet no one thought it was suitable to celebrate the birth of one of the greatest minds in history? The man who revolutionized society and that google, or ANY modern convenience or technology, would not exist without? The man who worked his ENTIRE life to give us HUNDREDS of inventions that we couldn't imagine life without? Finally, the man who did all of this with little regard for his own welfare or wealth, something so uncommon in any human in history.

I just think it's absolutely outrageous not to honor such an important and noble genius in a way that would have been so simple but so far-reaching and symbolic. I'm a big google fan, but this REALLY upsets me and I can't describe how disgusted I will be when in a few days google celebrates some random person or occasion that no one has ever even heard of and made little contribution to humanity.
