So I hope everyone has had a great start to their April. April though, can sometimes have a rude awakening. Either it can rain the first week, or end up being abnormally cold. This year, at least where I live it has been pretty nice. There is this one thing I am forgetting about though. That would be April 1st, or April Fools as we all know it.
It is like it sounds. A day to be reasonably foolish. It was said to have begun sometime in history when the calender which New Years from April 1st to January 1st. Now of course back then word could only get around by word of mouth or by horse. Either way if you are trying to tell everyone in a country it may take a while. So while some people were celebrating the new New Years, the others were celebrating on the previous date. Well the people still celebrating on April 1st were called fools and had tricks played on them. Now today the date and customs have changed a little and it is a fun and games to pull a trick on somebody on April 1st. So once April comes around each year you better be on your toes and ready for almost anything, and don't believe everything you hear because you might become a fool for falling for the trick.
