What's in trends this week? According to Lycos 50 (whom we have no reason to doubt), it is, after Saddam, the holidays, the new year.
Both the term "new year" and the term "Auld Lang Syne" (the "NYE song", "Should auld acquaintance be forgot/and never brought to mind ? / Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne ?") star on the top of their search results.
Other movers and shakers are Al Jazeera (due to Saddam's execution) and the regular assortment of celebrities.
