Father’s Day 2019: Google Doodle Dedicates the Special Day to All Fathers

Google honours all the Fathers by creating a beautiful doodle on Father’s Day.

On Father’s Day, Google Doodle illustrated the filial love that the world’s fathers shower upon their kids throughout their life.

Google honoured the world’s fathers on the event of Father’s Day on Sunday with three animated slides, representing the filial love that they shower upon their children in a endearing doodle. Father’s Day is praised on the third Sunday of June every year in the United States and several other countries including India to honor the dads.

In the three slides, a grey coloured father duck looks after and plays with his six ducklings, two blue, two red, one yellow and one green. While the first slide shows the father duck haplessly watching his ducklings creating a ruckus, one even jumping on his head, the following slide shows the father playing hide and seek with his tiny ducklings. The third slide shows him blowing bubbles at them, which engulfed the babies making them rise in the air, only to pop later and make them fall down.

Slide 3 of Sunday’s Google Doodle

The lovable doodle harps the basic truth that fathers ensure their children, guide them as they fall and are always there to lift the little ones’ spirits up. Basically, Sunday’s doodle exhibits that our fathers always have our back notwithstanding the situation.

The search giant has a background marked by posting interesting doodles checking different events of significance and popularity.

Despite the fact that the day is celebrated in Europe on March 19 (Saint Joseph’s Day) since the Middle Ages, its current starting points can be followed back to the relentless efforts of a woman more than 100 years ago in the United States.

In 1909, Sonora Smart Dodd was tuning in to a lesson about Mother’s Day at a congregation in Washington, when she started wondering why fathers didn’t have aspecial day dedicated to them. She worked “tirelessly with the local clergy and got the YWCA (Young Women Christian Association) on board, and they had their first Father’s Day in Spokane in 1910,” her granddaughter Betsy Roddy told the Associated Press in 2017.

After decades of campaigning for an officially-recognized Father’s Day in the United States, Sonora’s efforts finally paid off after President Lyndon B. Johnson, in 1966, issued the first presidential proclamation designating the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day. Father’s Day became a permanent federal holiday in the United States when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.
