To mark the Father's Day on third Sunday of June this year (June 21), Google has put out green-coloued animated doodle to wish a happy Father's day to the visitors of its homepage.
In order to celebrate the familial love, the animated doodle depicts father-child relationship. on clicking the doodle, one can see a male penguin protecting its egg, a pup imitating the father dog, kittens perched on a cat's back and a child surprising his father with a gift.
The Father's Day doodle is somewhat like Mother's Day doodle of this year. However, both the days have acquired the status of a commercial or 'Hallmark Holiday' to sell merchandise and do business. In fact, Father's Day was instituted much after the success of Mother's Day.
