All Fools Day!

Posted by Shayla Simmons — 26 Mar 2013

People love to play practical jokes!  April fools day is celebrated all around the world despite the fact that it is not a recognized world-wide holiday.  The origins of April Fools Day are not all that clear, but can be traced all the way back to the 1500's when a new calender was introduced having the first of the year falling on January 1 instead of April 1.  Many people did not hear about the change of the calender and some chose not to abide by the change and so they were labeled fools for following the wrong date.

All over the world there are many different kinds of pranks that people play, but the best are the ones that everyone can laugh at, especially the victim.

"The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year."

                                                                                   - American humorist Mark Twain
