April Fools’ Day Traditions.

So, how did this crazy tradition start? Although there are numerous theories regarding how April Fools’ Day began, the truth remains unknown.

Theory 1

The first relationship between April 1 and trickery can be observed in Geoffrey Chaucer’s 1392 work The Canterbury Tales. A fox tricks haughty rooster Chauntecleer on syn “March bigan thritty dayes and two” in “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale.” Despite the fact that Chaucer most likely meant 32 days after March (May 2), most readers interpreted the sentence to mean March 32 — or April 1.

Others claim that April Fools’ Day arose from a wish to commemorate the changing of the seasons during the spring season. Indeed, numerous societies have always had such festivals around April 1st. On March 25, the ancient Romans, for example, held a feast known as Hilaria. Holi, a Hindu festival that commemorates the beginning of spring, takes place in March.

Theory 2

Some people thinks that April Fools’ Day started in 1582 when a new calendar was adopted. Around April 1st, several ancient nations observed New Year’s Day. Pope Gregory XIII sanctioned the use of a new calendar, the Gregorian calendar, in 1582, which observed New Year’s Day on January 1. According to folklore, many individuals were unaware of the new calendar. On April 1, these people celebrated New Year’s Day in the same way they did in January.

Other people then began to mock these “fools” by sending them on “fool’s errands” or tricking them into believing something completely bogus.

Although we don’t know when April Fools’ Day began, people continue to celebrate it with delight year after year. Pranks can be basic or intricate. When the victim falls for the joke, the prankster frequently exclaimsms, “April Fool!”
