• In 16th century France celebrated the New Year on April 1.

Then, Pope Gregory introduced a new calendar for the Christian world, and the New Year fell on January 1. But some people hadn`t heard the change in the date, so they continued to celebrate New Year`s Day on April 1. Others played tricks with on and called them “April fools”…

• People tried to make them believe that something false was true. • In France today, April 1 is called “Poisson d`Avril”.

The cleverest April Fool joke is the one where everyone laughs, especially the person upon whom the joke is played.
