Happy New Year 2022: Google doodle today bids GOODBYE to 2021!
As we are just a few hours away from the New Year, which is the year 2022, Google Doodle today is bidding goodbye to 2021. Google has unveiled a celebratory doodle to welcome the next year, 2022 too. The doodle went live at 12 am on December 31 and is decorated with lots of confetti, candies and jacklights. Yes, it is a celebration of the past year as well as a welcome for the new one. A big candy captioned '2021' is placed right in the middle of the word 'Google'.
The candy looks ready to pop as soon as the clock strikes midnight on December 31 to welcome the New Year 2022. The other letters of the word ‘Google' are also colourfully decorated in the doodle with jacklights and some extra confetti to enhance the celebratory mood of the doodle.
“That's a wrap for 2021 – Happy New Year's Eve!” wrote Google on its doodles' archive documenting the new design. This time, Google has kept the design plain and simple but innovative.
Looking back at 2021, we can say that the year was marred by the coronavirus pandemic which was detected first in 2019 in China and spread to other parts of the world. The virus also resulted in multiple waves of infections, hospitalisations, and millions of deaths across the world.
Coronavirus has killed more than 5.4 million people, triggered economic crises and seen societies ricochet in and out of lockdowns. Currently the entire world is fighting Covid-19's latest variant, Omicron.
With people across the world getting into the festive and partying mode, governments are a bit concerned as this may lead to faster and wider spread of the virus, especially the highly contagious new variant - Omicron. Many cities across the world have restricted the celebrations for New Year in the wake of the Omicron variant spreading rapidly across the many parts of the world.
Though the year is ending on a grim note, a new year will bring a lot more excitement and celebrations with itself. However, people are advised to take care of themselves and follow the Covid-19 protocols.
