Happy Easter!

It’s Easter Sunday AND April Fools’ Day! When will this ever happen again?

Did you know that this day has a very common and long history? The first record of April Fool’s Day comes from 1392 and was mentioned in ‘The Canterbury Tales’ by Geoffrey Chaucer.

In Italy, we call it ‘Fish of April’, in France it’s called the same way. The real origin and why on the 1st of April is unknown, but it seems that Fools’ Day was always there. Maybe to give also adults the possibility to live their childish moments. I think it could be a very much Roman tradition during the long festivities in spring.

We don’t know but we all enjoy to make jokes and sometimes we also believe what magazines and media tell us right this day. Before the day after the truth comes out.

So I wish you a Happy Easter AND a joyful April Fools’ Day! Don’t believe all you hear today and be kind to your neighbors 😉

For a wonderful spring start I send you a bunch of flowers out of the garden, enjoy and have a great Day!

Be sociable, tell others!
