Google Appreciates Father With Cute Doodles

Good day readers. It it Sunday 21st June and some people are celebrating Father's Day today. Father's Day is just a symbolic of appreciation for fathers. For some people they love to have this kind of specific day(s) with specific purpose(s) to show appreciation to specific individual(s).

In conjunction with Father's Day, Google did it always does, to celebrate the day with its doodle. As for Father's Day, Google present a very nice and cute animated doodle showing what fathers have done for their kids in brief yet meaningful animation.

As for Muslims, we don't have to celebrate this day because we have been thought to appreciate and/or to do good deeds to our parents everyday for the rest of our lives. Fathers have sacrificed a lot for their families.They did everything they could to support and take care of families. There will be someone who complains about having bad father. But remember, he is your father. Hence if he can change, one must forgive his/her father.

ORIGINS OF FATHER’S DAY

The campaign to celebrate the nation’s fathers did not meet with the same enthusiasm–perhaps because, as one florist explained, “fathers haven’t the same sentimental appeal that mothers have.” On July 5, 1908, a West Virginia church sponsored the nation’s first event explicitly in honor of fathers, a Sunday sermon in memory of the 362 men who had died in the previous December’s explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah, but it was a one-time commemoration and not an annual holiday. The next year, a Spokane, Washington woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents. She went to local churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers and government officials to drum up support for her idea, and she was successful: Washington State celebrated the nation’s first statewide Father’s Day on July 19, 1910. Slowly, the holiday spread. In 1916, President Wilson honored the day by using telegraph signals to unfurl a flag in Spokane when he pressed a button in Washington, D.C. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge urged state governments to observe Father’s Day. However, many men continued to disdain the day. As one historian writes, they “scoffed at the holiday’s sentimental attempts to domesticate manliness with flowers and gift-giving, or they derided the proliferation of such holidays as a commercial gimmick to sell more products–often paid for by the father himself.”
