April Fool's Day

Today is April Fool's Day and I began to wonder how this got started, so went searching for a beginning and this is what I found:
In 1564 France reformed its calendar, by moving the beginning of the year to January 1 instead of the end of March. Many people, who stubbornly clung to the old calendar system and kept on celebrating the New Year on April 1st became the brunt of many jokes. Pranksters would sneak up and stick paper fish to their backs and call them Poisson d'Avril. Which translates to "April Fish" and is still the French term for April Fools. I thought this was interesting and funny how many traditions are formed and how they remain that way forever and usually out of some sort of funny little thing. I found an article on the internet and this great picture of the April Fish. Our Thanks to the person that researched this for us all to enjoy!
