Could be that Waze thinks that these types of items are not appropriate for the rest of the world? Although of course people in the United States and Canada have many religions and belief's also.

If this is the case it's pathetic!

In America, we call this the Holidays. In the UK, you guys seem to use "Holday" to refer to a vacation trip. Therefore, they're trying to make a splash screen that utilizes the foreign language y'all speak over there! :lol:

I did finally get the splash screen this afternoon ... but no goodies to be found. As to why they're not there, maybe the Grinch did get them all ... if so, then they should be back on Christmas morning, so never fear! :D

It is a bit odd, though ... I mean, the Hallowe'en ghosts and pumpkins came out on the first of October ... why did they not announce the Christmas goodies until December 20th (and then not even put them out, just announce them)? :?

Just saw the popup screen this morning as well, but no goodies here yet either.

Both the popup message and the seasonal goodies have been spotted in the UK. :D
