Prank Gifts for April Fool's Day
Come April 1, and everyone is trying to pull a prank on each other. We all have faced the embarrassment in ways on April Fool’s Day, which led to us thinking who started it first?
Well, we won’t play a prank on you by telling wrong facts, but the origins of foolish day remain uncertain. Some say it is the celebration related to the change of seasons while some are of the belief that adoption of a new calendar leads to the evolution of All Fool’s day-- the other name of April Fool’s Day.
In 1582, Pope Gregory, XIII ordered a new calendar-- the Georgian calendar to replace the old Julian calendar. The new calendar instructed to celebrate the New Year on January 1. However, people continued to celebrate the New Year on April 1, and were seen as fools by others.
Another historical event behind celebrating April Fool can be traced back to 1642. One of the daily chores of Saint Joseph Vial included playing a prank on someone in the neighborhood every day. He played his last prank on April 1, 1642-- the day he died, and this day is marked as April Fool’s Day in his remembrance.
