April begins with a day of fun and jokes the April Fools’ Day (sometimes called April Fool’s Day or All Fools’ Day). It was celebrated yeterday, as every year, on the first day of April. This is the day when people play jokes on each other.
No one really knows when this custom began but it has been kept for hundreds of years. There are many theories about the beginning of this custom. It is said that the first reference between 1 April and foolishness can be found in British author Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales (1392).
