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’.
