POST-BACKGROUND

Congratulations to Leaping Cleverspirit, Victory Frozenninja, Arctic Wolf, Fabulous Magicflower, and Magical Loopystar!! They all receive Artist Plaques for their dens.

Some believe that the April Fools’ custom began in France, although no one can prove it. The theory is it may have started in the 16th century (100 years) when a new calendar system was used. The 1st of the year was moved from April to January.

People who continued to use April 1st as the beginning of the new year were called ‘April Fools’, and people played tricks on them. What bullies!

However, the custom has persisted in many cultures, becoming more playful and a sign of friendship. In France, children will tape paper fish to their friend’s backs. In Scotland, they call their victims ‘gowks’ which means ‘cuckoo bird’.

Congratulations to Prince Toughclaw, Precious Fastcheetah, Jumping Happyfox, Empress Magicstar, and Miss Arcticwolf!! They all receive Artist Plaques for their dens.

Did you know that a female rabbit is called a doe and male is a buck? What other animals are called does and bucks? Something even more fun to know is a young rabbit is called a kit or kitten. And of course we know that a baby rabbit is called a bunny!

Rabbits can be trained to live indoors and are said to have the disposition and behaviors of a cat. The rabbit is the 3rd most popular pet in the UK, and it’s estimated that as many a 2 million rabbits are kept as pets in the US.

More than half of the world’s rabbits live in North America and can live up to ten years.

Do you have a rabbit in Jamaa?

Spring is springing in Jamaa!!

Did you know that If you stand on the equator on the first day of spring, you will see the sun pass directly overhead. This will only happen twice a year on the equinox (ee-kwin-ox), the first day of Spring and the first day of Autumn. These are also the only two days of the year that we have an equal amount of day and night hours.

Thanks to Miss Sunnypaw, Fauna Magicstar, Fuzzy Acrticwolf, Enchanted Prettywolf, Victory Vinescout for submitting their art by way of Jammer Central.
