The most anticipated time of year for lovers is here. Today is Valentine’s Day, a day to celebrate love. February, which marks the arrival of spring and colorful seasonal flowers, has long been celebrated as a month of love. Valentine’s Day can be enjoyed by everyone by showing love for each other around us. Regardless of one’s age, love makes life happy, especially in difficult times.
Valentine’s Day has its origins in the Roman festival Lupercalia. People all over the world exchange sweets, flowers and gifts between loved ones. Some people take their loved one out for a romantic dinner while others choose the special day to offer. Shops and malls are overflowing with huge red hearts and restaurants are putting special items on their menu for Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day was especially popular years ago in America, France and Australia. In the United Kingdom, Valentine’s Day gained popularity around the 17th century and later the day was widely celebrated by friends and loved ones on different continents. People began to exchange gifts and tokens of affection. In some countries, the day is marked to appreciate friends. People in Finland celebrate Valentine’s Day as ‘Friends Day’ and in Guatemala as ‘Day of Love and Friendship’.
Google is committed to presenting small interactive games on various occasions throughout the year.
Google 2022 Valentine’s Day doodle shows two hamsters expressing affection for each other in space. The two hamsters whose love knows no bounds are separated by a treacherous maze in the shape of the Google logo.
Those navigating the Google homepage today should try to reunite the two hamsters by pulling a series of levers and switches until the Google logo is complete.
The 30-second game, which can be played by people of all age groups, can help complete the Google logo and make room for the hamsters through the tunnel to get back together. Once the hamsters are reunited, a heart with the message Happy Valentine’s Day will appear on the screen.
