Google's 2010 Christmas holiday logo is live now. Google reportedly started working on this logo back in July, spending 250 man hours between five different "doodle" designers to create the 17 interactive images that make up this year's Google holiday logo.

Michael Lopez, Google's Chief Doodler said, "We want to end the year with a bang." The 17 interactive portraits displayed in the holiday logo represent holiday scenes from around the world. Google originally planned to introduce each portrait individually over the course of the 2.5 days that the logo is to be displayed, but Google's executives decided they all needed to be displayed at once.
