Another year has come and gone. On New Year's Eve, Google Doodle unveiled a festive doodle with lots of candies, confetti, and jacklights to prepare for the new year, 2022. As soon as the clock struck 12 on Thursday to show December 31, the last day of the year, the doodle went live on Google's homepage across various regions.
The celebratory doodle features a candy popper with 2021 written on it. The 'G' of Google is also decorated with jacklights and a party cap.
There's also some extra new year's confetti to add to the doodle's celebratory vibe. When you click on Google Doodle, a new page will appear on your screen with confetti all over it. Look for an animated confetti cone on the right side of the page. When you click it, confetti will shoot over your screen again.
The Google Doodle, on the other hand, did not come with many descriptions this time. Instead, Google is counting on its users to appreciate the doodle's uncomplicated and simple design to welcome the new year.
Documenting the new design on its doodle's archive, all it says is “That's a wrap for 2021 – Happy New Year's Eve!”
When covid hit us in 2020 and the entire world was shut down, the year felt like five years. Desperate to move on from catastrophic 2020, people stepped into 2021 with hope. And, unlike 2020, this year passed in the blink of an eye.
But, a lot happened. In India, the second wave of Covid pandemic wreaked havoc. Many people lost their loved ones owing to covid or lack of covid treatment. From multiple militant attacks in the country's border areas to the fatal chopper crash that killed CDS Vipin Rawat and 12 other gallant personnel, 2021 did not miss putting India to test.
However, many wonderful events happened as well. India's outstanding performance at the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics earned the country many medals, including gold in the javelin throw. Harnaaz Sandhu reclaimed the Miss Universe crown after a 21-year drought. Several Indians, including Leena Nair and Parag Agrawal, have become CEOs of multibillion-dollar companies around the world.
In a nutshell, 2021 was a roller coaster ride. The year, however, has come to an end. Let us say goodbye to 2021 on a cheerful note and welcome 2022 with caution as Omicron has knocked on the country's door.
