Google Doodle celebrates Mothering Sunday with tribute to mums across the animal kingdom …. And their children!
Google’s cute animation shows mothers across nature nurturing their young offspring. Cubs, chicks, pups, bunnies and lastly a child are shown in the care of their mother.
Flowers don’t make much of an appearance in this year’s Mother’s Day Google Doodle.
The animated Doodle, designed by Olivia Huynh, honors a range of mothers — human moms and various animal ones — as they’re greeted by their children, cubs, chicks and baby bunnies.
“Brainstorming for this Doodle and thinking of my own mom, lots of small moments and gestures of affection came up, so I decided to concentrate on that as a concept,” Huynh explained. “I spent awhile trying to figure out how I could use style to keep the characters somewhat minimalistic and relatable since Mother’s Day is celebrated all around world.”
While previous Mother’s Day Doodles have tended to incorporate colorful carnations, this year’s Doodle seems to be more in line with what the holiday’s founder would’ve wanted to see. Philadelphia activist Anna Jarvis, who came up with the idea in 1908 to pay a tribute to her mother, later slammed the commercialization of the holiday and the profiteering of Mother’s Day carnations.

Mother’s Day is a modern celebration honoring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father’s Day and Siblings Day.
The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as Pitru Paksha in Ancient India, the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a celebration of the mother church, not motherhood).
Despite this, in some countries, Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.
