It is that time of the year when you could say just about anything and get away claiming you were playing a prank. It is time for April Fool's Day. Falling every year on April 1, the occasion plays the best excuse for hopeless lovers to confess their love and claim it was a prank if they get turned down, friends can abuse the hell out of their buddies under the mask of a joke and an opportunity to bring out that hidden child in you.
While it is a fact that it falls on the first day of the fourth month of the year, not many might know how the prank day came into existence.
A popular tale claims that the earliest instance of April 1 doubling into All Fool's Day took place in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. Several reports suggest that the New Year's Day was celebrated in April for the longest of time.
In 1582, the Gregorian Calendar was introduced and it announced that January 1 would be the New Year's Day. But many refused to change it and went on to celebrate New Year's Day in April. Those who changed according to the calendar began mocking those who continued to celebrate New Year's Day in April and began sending them on "fool's errands." Thus came April Fool's Day practice into existence.
Keeping the tradition going, people across the world spend days planning the perfect prank on their friends and colleagues. (Psst, are you looking for pranks to pull on your colleagues, check the quickest and funniest prank ideas here.)
