Happy Father’s Day Google Doodle: On special occasions, Google regularly publishes a Doodle that looks to put things in perspective and to celebrate the occasion or the individual. Today being Father’s Day, there’s a special Google Doodle marking the day. It is a great occasion to show appreciation for the role fathers play in children's lives, from upbringing, providing the necessities of life to giving life lessons to ensure they grow up to be a positive influence on friends, family, acquaintances and the world at large. The Father’s Day Google Doodle is visible on the Google app, and Google Chrome across all devices. The usual Google logo has been replaced by the Father’s Day Google Doodle so it won’t be hard to spot it.
The Father’s Day Google Doodle is a cute stop-motion artwork that depicts a kid expressing love in a most innocent way. As with every Google Doodle, the Google letters play out the message. In this one, the ‘G’ from Google represents the dad and the small ‘g’ represents the kid. Both letters appear from a pop-out card where the kid is passing hearts to the dad. This Doodle has been designed by Doodler Olivia When. Google also shared some early sketches of the Doodle which shows the design has been inspired by pop-up cards.
When it comes to the history of Father’s Day, it was originally celebrated on March 19 as Saint Joseph’s Day by Catholic countries in Europe. It is celebrated to honour fatherhood and paternal bonds, and also the influence of fathers in society since the Middle Ages. Later in 1910, Father’s Day was founded by Sonora Smart Dodd in the United States, and the third Sunday of June has since been regarded as Father’s Day. This tradition is followed by many counties but there are some regions that have their own dates and traditions as well.
