Google celebrates Father’s Day with interactive Doodle

Google has marked Father’s Day with an interactive Google Doodle.
The doodle on the Google home page features a button in the second ‘o’ which when pressed changes a slot machine type selection of images of father’s in different roles as part of story.

Father’s Day was created in the United States in the early 20th century to complement Mother’s Day.

The credit for the creation of the modern holiday is often given to Sonora Smart Dodd, who was the daughter of American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart.

Smart came up with the idea of the day after hearing a church sermon on Mother’s Day – she created the day as she believed fatherhood needed to be recognised as well. Smart’s father William Jackson Smart was a single parent who raised six children.

She initially suggested her own father’s birthday (5th June) as the date but the Spokane Ministerial Alliance selected the third Sunday in June.

The majority of nations mark the day on the third Sunday in June but there are international variations.
