Growing up I used to love this day!!! I use to try to trick my family and friends with these wild random stories or situations. Blogging about this now makes me giggle and laugh. The silly things we did as a child or the things we said. So I don’t blog about every holiday just mainly the ones that I celebrate or I am familiar with personally.
Today is kind of a holiday if you follow western european traditions. Today is also the first day of April. You guys we are four months into 2019 !!! Isn’t that crazy and really weird???? So I will keep this one short and KWERKE and list some fun facts about April Fools Day or April 1st “APRIL FIRST”

|Also called||All Fools’ Day|
|Significance||Practical jokes, pranks|
|Next time||1 April 2019|
April Fools’ Day or April Fool’s Day (sometimes called All Fools’ Day) is an annual (primarily) Western celebration commemorated on April 1 by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes. The jokes and their victims are called April fools. People playing April Fool jokes often expose their prank by shouting “April fool(s)” at the unfortunate victim(s). Some newspapers, magazines and other published media report fake stories, which are usually explained the next day or below the news section in smaller letters. Although popular since the 19th century, the day is not a public holiday in any country.
Aside from April Fools’ Day, the custom of setting aside a day for the playing of harmless pranks upon one’s neighbour has historically been relatively common in the world.
