Today, April 1, it is considered April Fool’s Day, a celebration that covers several European and Western countries.
The best-known origin of this date comes from the 16th century, when some French people were ridiculed for resisting the change to the Gregorian calendar – in which the new year stopped being celebrated between March 25th and April 1st and started to be celebrated on the day January 1st.
