Google displayed a Diwali Doodle 5 years ago:
http://www.google.com/doodles/diwali-2008

Google seldom repeats a commemoration.

Great question. I was expecting a Diwali doodle too. Disappointing.

Google does not even put logo for Easter or Christmas, which are celebrated by more people than Diwali. Google has a strong policy against doing doodles for religious holidays, with few exceptions

This is in reply to answers by bluequoll and ABC_News.

Your response is quite Interesting.
Wonder what do you have to say about these:
http://www.google.com/doodles/search?query=halloween
http://www.google.com/doodles/search?query=happy+holidays
http://www.google.com/doodles/search?query=patrick

Though as an Indian its upsetting to see no doodle on Diwali, I acknowledge that the decision is Google's and I respect that.

Bottom line, what's your point if google.com or google.ca does not accommodate Diwali believers. Google does not accommodate any traditional religious North American holiday either. And these at least are holidays and celebrations North America was founded upon.

Halloween and st. Patricks day are not considered religious holidays in North America. Further to the point, These are both national holidays brought by the settlers of North America. It is tradition.

There was no Christmas doodle because it is a religious holiday, despite its long standing tradition, to accommodate those who have other beliefs.
