April Fools' Day – History0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:53 pm
Origin
 
The origins of April Fools’ Day are actually debated upon. Ancient cultures, including those of the Romans and Hindus, celebrated New Year’s Day on or around April 1. It closely follows the vernal equinox (March 20 or March 21.) In medieval times, much of Europe celebrated March 25, the Feast of Annunciation, as the beginning of the new year.
 
As it actually came about, Pope Gregory XIII ordered for a new calendar to take place. This required New Year’s Day to be moved to January 1 instead of April 1. Instead, many people were taken aback and continued to celebrate on April 1. People would make fun of these traditionalists, and in the end, sent the “fool’s errands” to trick them.
 
The Issue
 
This day is probably the worst out of the whole year for me. It is abused and overused. It has been many, many years since this tradition was started, and it still seems to be going quite strong! Although, I hate it when I am constantly bothered. Yes – I understand it is popular with the little ones, but appreciate this tradition for what it really was.
 
What was the worst prank that has ever been pulled on you? I would say that my worst was when I was told that there was a gas leak at school. Look, I was half conscious when I woke up. How am I supposed to determine whether it was a joke or not?
 
What do you think about this day? Should it be abolished? Discuss with us below!
