April Fool’s Day is one of the rare opportunities when playing a prank can be excused. But before hurling that new prank you have in mind, take a step back in time to understand where April Fool’s Day began.
There are different theories about the day’s origin. The most popular theory was the calendar change proposed by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. Pope Gregory ordered a new calendar and changed the New Year’s Day Celebration from April 1 to January 1. However, some traditionalists ignored the “celebration change” and continued celebrating New Year’s Day as April 1. The people who adopted the change started making fun of those April the first fanatics, tricking them into believing that they had the wrong belief. Those minor tricks evolved over centuries to become what we know as the modern day April Fool’s Day.
