Winter Season 2021: Google marks beginning of winter with this animated doodle

It’s winter time in India and most parts of the world. To mark the beginning of the season in the northern hemisphere, tech giant Google has created an animated doodle. The Google Doodle features a hedgehog covered in snow.
Termed Winter Solstice, the day marks the beginning of the season in the northern hemisphere. It starts today and will end on March 20. Winter solstice is also called hibernal solstice, and brumal solstice. It occurs when either of Earth’s poles reaches its maximum tilt away from the sun. At the winter solstice, the sun travels the shortest path through the sky to the earth. This in simple term means shorter days and longer nights.
Cold wave conditions have spread over most parts of northern India, where the mercury levels have dropped to shivering levels. The national capital Delhi registered its coldest morning so far this season on Sunday when the temperature dropped to 3.3°C.
The minimum temperature of 3.1 degrees Celcius was recorded at the Lodhi Road observatory.
Rajasthan continues to experience freezing levels as Churu records -0.5 degrees Celsius, while -1.8 degrees Celsius was recorded in Fatahpur.
Meanwhile in Jammu, the minimum temperature dipped to 3.2 degrees Celsius.

Used to think I was a tad indecisive, but now I’m not quite sure.
