Mother’s Day 2022: Google Doodle releases GIF for the special occasion

Marking the day that’s a dedication to mothers across the world, Google has released a special Gif Doodle with four slides on Mothers Day 2022. Google is celebrating the day by illustrating several small ways in which a mother nurtures her child.

A mother and child planting a sapling in today’s doodle.
In the first slide, the child is shown holding the mother’s finger, in the second one, both are reading braille, the third slide shows them washing hands under a tap, and in the last one, the mother and the child are planting a sapling. All symbolize the special relationship of a mother and a child, and the mother’s role in the growth of children.

The celebration of Mother’s Day has its origins in the Middle Ages. “(During those times), the custom developed of allowing those who had moved away to visit their mothers on Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent,” according to Britannica.

This developed into Mothering Sunday in Britain. The custom was carried forward to modern times and was eventually replaced by Mother’s Day on May 12, 1907, when Anna Jarvis, a woman in the US, hosted a Mother’s Day Service of Worship in honour of her late mother in a church in West Virginia.

Different countries celebrate Mother’s Day on different dates. UK citizens celebrate the Mother’s Day on the fourth Sunday of March commemorating the memory of Mother Church on Christian Mothering Sunday.

In Greece, it is marked on February 2, linking the day with Eastern Orthodox celebration of the presentation of Jesus Christ at the temple.
