Google doodle celebrates Mother’s Day

Though every child wishes her mom Mother’s Day, but there is someone who is omnipresent and wishes Mother’s Day to all moms of the world. Ubiquitous Google, with its today’s heart-touching doodle, wishes all moms “Happy Mother’s Day”.

It’s just an amazing doodle from Google this Mother’s Day. As you open the Google homepage in your browser, the second “G” of the term Google will appear that symbolizes a mother. Suddenly, a door opens and G’s children surprisingly come running, and wish her Mother’s Day with a flower, hug her and cling to her tightly. But, who are these children? Interestingly, the two O’s in the Google logo turn into kids.

This animated doodle has the complete feel of Mother’s Day. The second G (that represents mother) is wearing a necklace, thereby making it look like a female. The doodle features two O’s as kids, who are standing hand in hand.

As far as color scheme is concerned, all the Google colors – red, yellow, purple, green and blue – are there in today’s Mother’s Day doodle.

Google has been celebrating Mother’s Day with its doodles for a number of years now and the Mother’s Day doodle always has a flower in it.

While Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days in many parts of the world, it is the second Sunday of May (May 13 in 2012) when it is most widely celebrated.

Anna Marie Jarvis, had started a campaign in 1907 following her mother’s death to make Mother’s Day a recognized holiday in the US. In 1912 she obtained trademarks for the phrases “second Sunday in May” and “Mother’s Day” and established the Mother’s Day International Association. US President President Woodrow Wilson signed a law making the holiday official. But Jarvis was disappointed with the commercialization of the event.

The ancient Greek and Romans also held festivities in honour of their mother goddesses. In Britain and Celtic Europe, goddess Brigid and later St. Brigid were honoured with a Mother’s Day in spring.

On March 21, to commemorate the Arab Mother’s Day, Google had put up a Mother’s Day doodle on its home pages in Arab countries including Egypt, Bahrain, UAE, Jordan, Libya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
