History of April Fool’s Day

Its history has many stories.  This story is connected with a different culture in each country.  Let’s see what they are.

 1.  Calendar Shift: This is the most common story.  In 1564, France changed the country’s calendar.  Earlier the year started from the end of March.  But that year it was changed and the new year started on January 1.  Many people could not accept this change.  They continue to celebrate the beginning of the New Year from 25th March to 1st April.  Those who accepted the change were also fooled.  A fish made of paper is attached to their back.  Those in favor of the new calendar were called April Fools.  From that, the story of April Fools begins.  This is still the most popular story about the history of ‘April Fools’.

 Roman Theory: When the Roman god Pluto abducts his wife Persephone, Persephone’s mother Ceres tries hard to find her daughter.  But don’t get it.  The girl was under the ground.  But his mother kept searching above ground ‘like a fool’.  Thinking about that ‘foolishness’, the Romans used to celebrate Fool’s Day on this day.

 2. British Story: According to British folklore, the city of ‘Gotham’ in Nottinghamshire was the city of fools.  The rule of the thirteenth century was that wherever the king of the country set foot, it would become the property of the state.  When the people of Gotham heard that the king was coming, they said, “Don’t let him in.”  The king sent troops.  Soldiers came to see the whole city of terrible incidents!  Everyone is acting like a fool.  They went back and reported.  The king said such fools cannot be punished.  So he forgave.  Gotham remained independent.  Since then the day is ‘Fool’s Day.

3. German Folklore: On April 1, 1530, a conference was held in Augsburg, Germany.  Many bet huge money thinking about the outcome of the discussion.  But in the end that meeting did not take place.  Many people’s money is stolen.  April Fool’s Day started from this foolishness.

4. The Story of the Netherlands: April 1, 1572.  On this day, the city of Den Briel in the Netherlands was freed from Spanish rule.  On this day the rebels fooled the rulers of Spain.  Since then, April Fool’s Day has been celebrated.

Why people celebrate April Fool’s Day

April Fool’s Day is again associated with the festival called ‘Hilaria’.  This Latin word means joyful.  April Fool’s Day is also celebrated around the Indian festival of Holi.  At this time, everyone had fun with friends and relatives by playing with colors.  Again, many people find the similarity of April Fool’s Day with the Persian festival Sijdah Bedar and Purnim of the Jews.  Note that all these festivals are celebrated during the arrival of spring and are associated with joy and revelry.

 Again, Geoffrey Chaucer mentions March 32 or April 1 in his fourteenth century The Canterbury Tales.  A story in this collection, The Nun’s Priest’s Tale, mentions that the engagement of King Richard II and Queen Anne of Bohemia was announced on 32 March.  The public accepted the declaration as true.  Since then, 32 March. 1 April, started to be celebrated as April Fool’s Day.
