Halloween, or Hallowe’en, is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31 and today Google gives us a spooktacular logo:
Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, Halloween festivals, bonfires, costume parties, visiting “haunted houses”, carving jack-o-lanterns, and viewing horror films.
Halloween originated from the Pagan festival Samhain, celebrated among the Celts of Ireland and Great Britain.
Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century.
Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century.

Google pays tribute to Luciano Pavarotti (October 12, 1935 – September 6, 2007), Cavaliere di Gran Croce was a celebrated Italian tenor in operatic music, who successfully crossed into popular music becoming one of the most beloved vocal performers.
While undertaking an international “farewell tour,” Pavarotti was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July 2006.
The tenor fought back against the implications of this diagnosis, undergoing major abdominal surgery and making plans for the resumption and conclusion of his singing commitments.
On September 6 2007, however, in an e-mail statement, his manager, Terri Robson, wrote: “The Maestro fought a long, tough battle against the pancreatic cancer which eventually took his life. In fitting with the approach that characterized his life and work, he remained positive until finally succumbing to the last stages of his illness.”

A quick scan of randomly-chosen Bangkok showed a healthy number of videos already locationally linked, including a videos from tourists on a boat cruising down the Chao Phraya river and cruising the city by Tuk-tuk.
On Tuesday, Google Earth announced that Street View maps of Chicago, Portland, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Tucson and Philadelphia are now available.
Go forth and procrastinate.

Google is a little late with the birthday logo because technically it should have been up on September 8th, 2006 but because of all the major releases and other events around the Googleplex, someone must have forgot.
Happy 8th Birthday Google! May all your non-evil birthday wishes come true!
