April fool’s Day
April fool’s Day
By Dilawar

Many of the ancient cultures such as Romans and Hindus and the medieval Europeans used to celebrate New Year's Day on sometime near the vernal equinox that could range from, when Pope Gregory XIII ordered the adoption of the new Gregorian calendar, which specified January 1st as the New Year's Day. However, due to slow communications and resistance of people to change their traditions, many people continued to celebrate New Year's Day as before on 1st of April. Scottish only adopted the new calendar in 1660, Germans, Danish and Norwegians in 1700 and English in 1752.
Many French resisted the change and negotiates dubbed them as fools and played pranks on them. They started sending them on 'fool's errands', sent them the fake invitations for parties and tricked them into believing something false. The victims were called 'Poisson d'Avril' or 'April Fish' as the naïve fish gets caught easily and children would often tag of a fish's picture on someone's back. Thus, April fool’s Day originated and was popularly celebrated in England and in the American colonies. It evolved and was caught on quickly throughout the world to trick each other and have fun. Even today, people play pranks on each other on this day in the memory of those tradition-obsessed 'fools' On 'All Fools' Day' or 'April Fools' Day', people play practical jokes and pranks on each other, crack jokes on the expense of victims and gift each other gag gifts and then when the victims are taken in by surprise, all the witnesses shout 'April Fool' at once. The innocent pranks such as prompting somebody that their shoelaces are undone or those they have something on their faces are quite common. Children love to use the opportunity to prank their classmates and even their school teachers
Some Practical Jokes & Tricks
• Rearrange somebody's drawers or file cabinets in a different order and see them baffled.
• Hard boil an egg and place it in the regular egg carton the night before. In the morning, ask someone to help you make breakfast and beat the egg to make omelets. Hand them the hard-boiled egg and watch them trying to crack it!
• On the other hand, you may just glue the eggs to the carton and ask someone to hand them to you in the morning. As the victims struggle to take the eggs out of the carton, they break.
• There are lots of fantastic tricks for heavy sleepers. Some of the popular ones are:
• Draw funny eyebrows and moustache on their faces while they are asleep.
• O Place some whipped cream in their hands and tickle their nose with a feather.
• O Placing someone's hand while they are asleep in a bowl of cold water is a sure way to make them wet their beds.
