Google Doodle Celebrates Labour Day With Instruments From A Toolkit

by onMay 16, 2015

On 1st May 2015, Google Doodle celebrates the Labour Day with instruments from a toolkit on its home page in many countries around the world. Google is specially known to come out with interesting doodles to celebrate special days of the year. Today’s doodle is so interesting. Just log on to google.com and you will be greeted by a set of tools such as pair of glooves, a measuring tape, a wrench and rolls of insulating tape along with a few spare screws and nuts scattered here and there for good measure.

This static doodle is Google’s amazing way of celebrating the May 1, Labour Day.

The day is initiated by the Labour Kisan Party of Hindustan in Chennai (then known as Madras) on May 1, 1923, the Labour Day or May Day is celebrated across India and it is a public holiday. May 1 also happens as a national holiday in 80 other countries including China, Bolivia, Chille, Pakistan, Nepal, Peru, Israel, Japan, and so on.

The Labour Day adheres to the philosophy of having an 8-hour work day, so that you may have next 16 hours for recreation and rest. Labour Day is also celebrated in France as well and Google has made another doodle for France where May 1 is also known as Premier Mai. The Labour day in France origins back to May 1, 1986.

The Labour day Google doodle made a comeback after a gap of over 30 minutes just after appearing. Means the doodle disappeared from the Google home pages across the world including India. According to the report, the Google doodle was visible on India’s home page till 10 AM but had disappeared when they checked at 10.14 AM ( except in France where there is a variant of the same doodle). Then it turned again at around 10.40 AM.
