All Fool's Day

Believe  it or not April Fool's Day is a Holy day of sorts for fools.

In the Middle Ages, New Year's Day was celebrated on the 25th of March in most of Europe. In some areas of France, New Year's was a week-long holiday ending on the 1st of April.So it's possible that April Fools originated because those who celebrated on the 1st of January made fun of those who celebrated on other dates. The use of the 1st of January as New Year's Day was common in France by the mid-sixteenth century, and this date was adopted officially in1564.

Naturally, believing them all to be Fools, they were to be made a mockery of . A laughing stock of.  I mean who doesn't know when New Year's Day is Right?

We only know because a Calendar tells us so. Not much has really changed since back then, and the world is still full of FOOLS!
