Google has released a doodle on Sunday commemorating Father’s Day. The doodle portrays colourful inverted handprints resembling dinosaurs. Google has commemorated this occasion in multiple years with the first one going back to 2000. That doodle was a simple one in which the first ‘o’ of Google had a hat and the ‘g’ wears a tie.
Every year, the third Sunday of June is celebrated as Father’s Day in India. This year, it falls on 17 June. The occasion complements similar celebrations of family members, such as Mother’s Day, Siblings Day and Grandparents Day. The day is usually celebrated with children giving gifts like greeting cards, books, flowers, clothes, electronic gadgets etc. to their fathers.
Father’s Day is celebrated on different days in different countries. India follows the North American tradition of celebrating it on the third Sunday of June. Some South American nations, as well as a few European ones, celebrate it on this day too.
