Google Celebrates 2017 Valentine's Day With Doodle Game

Google is celebrating St. Valentine's day with a lovely Doodle about endangered species looking for Love. Though, it's a game, an interesting one at that. I played the game on mobile and it's quite addictive.

The mammal in question is called Pangolins, they are the most poached and trafficked mammal in the world and are often referred to as the world’s only scaly mammal.

SHORT STORY ABOUT VALENTINE'S DAY

Valentine's Day, also known as Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine or lovers day, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

But who is really this man called Saint Valentines and why is he associated with love? Well, the saint officially recognised by the Roman Catholic Church was a real person who died around AD 270.

An account from 1400s describes Valentine as a priest who was beheaded by Emperor Claudius II for helping Christian couples wed.

The emperor had banned marriage as he thought single men made better soldiers. Valentine felt this was unfair so he celebrated marriages in secret. When the emperor found out he was thrown in jail and sentenced to death.

The man died for the sake of Love. He loves seeing people getting married and also help them wed. This day is marked out to celebrate agape love but it's unfortunate so many people are ignorant of what today should be and they celebrate it the wrong way.

How To Play Google Doodle Game

All you have to do is visit Google.com and click on the play button. You can use the up and down arrows on your PC to navigate or the On-screen navigations on Mobile to navigate.

This Game took the developers about a year to develop. Yea, it did.!

  5. When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.
