History tells us that back in the 1500’s the classified “New Years Day” was celebrated on or around April 1st. In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII ordered a new calendar to replace the old “Julian Calendar” and told the French to celebrate New Years Day on January 1st. Many people either refused to accept the new date, or did not want to learn about it, and continued to celebrate New Year’s Day on April 1st. Others began to make fun of these people and would send them on foolish errands or would trick them into believing something that is false. Hense, April Fools Day was made!

April Fools Day is a day to bring out your funny side, its a day to put a smile on someone elses face. Whether it may be plastic wrap on the toilet seat, butter on the door handles, or a couple classic jokes; its all for the fun in the end.
