April Fools day has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, but its exact origins remain a mystery!
According to History. com there are a few speculations:
- April Fools’ Day may date back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar , People who were slow to get the news or failed to recognize that the start of the new year had moved to January 1 and continued to celebrate it during the last week of March through April 1 became the butt of jokes and hoaxes.
- Historians have also linked April Fools’ Day to festivals such as Hilaria, which was celebrated in ancient Rome at the end of March and involved people dressing up in disguises.
- There’s also speculation that April Fools’ Day was tied to the vernal equinox, or first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, when Mother Nature fooled people with changing, unpredictable weather.
