Well, April is also known for its famous April Fool’s Day.We all love to prank, and get pranked, as long as it is light heartened and done with good intentions.

We all know that April is the fool’s month. But what come as a surprise to us are these fun trivia about April Fool’s Day:

  • It is believed that April Fool’s Day may have been started in France when Pope Charles IX changed the calendar to go with the Roman calendar. In France before 1582, the new year began on April 1st.  It was changed to January 1st in 1582. Some of the people there did not know about the change and continued to celebrate the new year on April 1st.  Those people were considered “April Fools”

 

  • April Fish: In France, April Fool’s Day is also known as April Fish, where the prankster quietly stick a paper fish on someone’s back without their knowledge and shouts “April Fish” if the person didn’t notice. The victims of this prank were originally called Poisson d’Avril.

  • In Scotland, April Fools’ lasts 48 hours and is also known as “April Gowk,” “Gowkie Day” or “Hunt the Gowk.  Gowks is the other name for cuckoo birds. The second day is known as Taily Day, and pranks usually involve the posterior side of the victim. Supposedly, it is the origin of “kick me” signs. Really Wicked!!!

  • BBC’s mind blowing prank: In 1957, the BBC telecasted a movie in their famous Panorama current affairs series showing a Swiss farmers picking fresh spaghetti. They called it the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest. What followed later?? Well, BBC recieved tonnes of requests for purchasing a spaghetti plant. So much that, they were eventually forced  to declare their movie a prank on the news the next day.
