April 1st Poisson d’Avril (April Fish Day) April Fools Day in France

Of course we all know today is a day to play harmless tricks on others and get a laugh for ourselves, and for them. It doesn’t always work that way, but that’s what it’s supposed to mean anyway. The day’s origins may have several sources but the most likely origin dates back to 1564 France, where it was believed to be New Years Day. The rest of the world could not follow the French logic and called them fools for believing it was New Year’s Day and those outside of France may have thought the French were trying to play a harmless trick on them.

How to celebrate – Play some harmless tricks on others (just make sure no one is getting hurt). Throw a party for our boss here at Unboxing the Bizarre, it’s her birthday! Visit France.
