.. today shows a revolving Christmas tree (no, it's not just a pine tree) with the message "Happy Holidays 2010".
Is this a Scrooge-like statement, or political- correctness gone insane?

It's so nobody of any religion will feel offended.
When I click on the one on my screen, it displays an animated 'Merry Christmas 2019' message.
2010 or is that a typo
The revolving Christmas tree part also features Santa and his reindeer zooming across the sky and there's a big star at one point too. It didn't seem Scrooge-like or PC-gone mad to me.
i didn't get all that just a revolving Christmas tree

Emmie, I hovered my cursor over it...
PC gone mad.
My tree doesn't revolve (even if I hover over it) but it definitely says Happy Christmas 2019!
Having had a second look it does say Happy Christmas, so not PC gone mad.
it goes up and down, round and round, quite cute..
PC gone mad but slightly different on tablets and phones.
Mine says Happy Christmas 2019
blimey some people are such snowflakes
I assume a 9 to 0 typo.

I'd suggest it's PC but in fairness it's a global brand and it's not like the whole world in nominally Christian. Maybe they should have had regional variations per country :-)
perhaps they do ... some people seeing happy christma some seeing happy holidays
Some Google Doodles are country specific.

Sorry should be 2019 (typo)
//It's so nobody of any religion will feel offended.//

Offend whom? I have/had friends who were Hindus, Jews, Buddhists & even Muslims who enjoy Christmas,
The only persons Google wish not to offend it seems must be atheists.
Google itself with its billions worships only Mammon.
as most people (in this country at least) are atheists, they got it right then kandro
Where I am in Catalonia you are much more likely to hear the local Christian people say Bones Festes (Happy Holidays) than Bon Nadal (Merry Christmas) and I don’t think it is anything to do with being PC.
I get "Happy Christmas 2019", not "Happy Holidays 2010".
