Google Doodle today celebrates Mother's Day with adorable GIF
Mother's Day 2022: The entire nation is celebrating Mother's Day on Sunday, May 8. And to make the day more special and wish all the mothers a very happy Mother's Day, Google Doodle today has launched a heartwarming GIF. Google Doodle, with the help of this GIF, is trying to show the special bond between a mother and a child in four slides. In the first slide, the GIF showcases two hands- a mother's hand and the other small or tiny hand of her child wherein the child's hand is holding the little finger of the mother's hand.
The second slide shows a mother educating the child, followed by the third slide where the child is being informed about the importance of conserving water and the fourth slide showing planting trees. Google Doodle also wished mother's day with a red heart. "Happy Mother's Day! ❤️," it said. It can be noted that Google Doodle has a tradition of celebrating important and historic events.
Today, every child tries to make their mother feel special by planning surprises, by telling them how important they are and also by showcasing their love. It can be known that different countries celebrate Mother’s Day on different dates. In India, Mother’s Day is observed on the second Sunday of May every year. While in the UK the day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of March commemorating the memory of Mother Church on Christian Mothering Sunday. Greece celebrates the eve on February 2, linking the day with the Eastern Orthodox celebration of the presentation of Jesus Christ at the temple.
It is believed the modern Mother’s Day celebrations first began in the US. The day is recorded to have first been observed in 1908 by Anna Jarvis as she wanted the day to be commemorated because her own mother had expressed such a desire. When Jarvis's mother passed away, she held a memorial for her in St Andrew’s Methodist Church in West Virginia, which is now known as the International Mother's Day Shrine.
