Happy April 1st

The origins of April Fools’ Day are unclear but in all likelihood it may have to do with mocking the French who were slow to change from the Gregorian calendar which changed New Year’s from April 1, to January 1.  The French were labeled as Fools and the subject of jokes and ridicule.   Other theories go back to the Hilaria Festival of ancient Rome and the Holi celebration in India.

Hoping your day is fun and doesn’t find you on the receiving end of anything too bizarre.
