April fools’ day is celebrated on the first of April each year, where people fool each other and prank each other when least expected, and the day that April fools’ day has started is still a mystery; why do people fool each other on this day and where did this entire April fools’ day start? Today we will share the exact history and the tale of April fools’ day.
History of April Fools’ day
Some Historians relate this day to 1582, back when France has switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar; the new year began with spring equinox around April first. And people started to do pranks, hoaxes, and jokes called April fools, such as having paper fish placed on their backs.
In Britain, during the 18th century, April Fools’ day started spreading, and in Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event in which people pranked each other with suspicious errands that did not make any sense.
