Google on March 20 marked the first day of spring and the end of the winter season in the northern hemisphere with a colourful doodle. Spring 2021 begins on March 20 and ends on June 21. It is also known as springtime and is one of the four temperate seasons.
Google has created an animated doodle full of life for spring 2021. The flamboyant Google doodle full of colours showcases the blossoming of flowers and the returning of hibernated animals with an animated animal most probably a hedgehog with a flower bouquet on his back and three honey-bees flying around it. Hedgehog comes out of hibernation during the Spring season. March 20, the first day of spring season, also known as Spring Equinox occurs when the sun passes the equator moving from the Southern to the Northern Hemisphere. At the equinox, days and nights are approximately twelve hours long, also signifies that day and night will be equal in length until the summer solstice in June. In the south of the equator, it is the beginning of autumn. It is generally defined in the Northern Hemisphere as extending from the vernal equinox (day and night equal in length), to the summer solstice (year’s longest day).
Equinox is used to mark the change of seasons, as the balance of light shifts to make days longer than nights. It marks the end of the winter season and informs people about the arrival of warmer days.
