No doodle today?

I have heard that DuckDuckGo has doodles, like Google.
Today is Thanksgiving, and I saw no doodles.
Why is that?

Yes, DDG does have occasion doodles: https://duck.co/help/features/holiday-lo...

DDG does have a small staff and lots of projects going on so doodles might be a lower priority.
Of course, users are encouraged to post their doodles ideas here (just give enough advanced notice so there's time to complete the doodle).

We also have no mechanism to change the logo based on where the user is in the world. Thanksgiving is only celebrated in the U.S., so putting a turkey dax up worldwide would be weird.

I wondered about that, but since others like August 3, 2012 National Watermelon Day (United States), October 3, 2011 German Unity Day, July 14, 2011 Bastille Day, July 4, 2011 Independence Day (United States), etc, I presumed that was not the case.

Fair point. Not really sure where the line is drawn, then.

It's because we decided not to do nationals specific, religious and politicals logos after those were made.
