The Origin of April Fools’ Day

No one really knows when or why April Fools’ Day traditions began. There are many different theories and stories that try to explain it, however. The most common one dates all the way back to the 16th century in France. In 1564, the Edict of Roussillon decreed that the new year would begin on January 1st, and no longer on Easter. Despite this, some people refused to accept the change and continued to celebrate the new year in late March. They were then referred to as poisson d’avril (literally “April’s fish”) by those who had adopted the new January 1st celebrations.

First of all, let’s talk about leprechauns. The word descends from the Old Irish language, and means something along the lines of “little corpse”. Leprechauns are small fairies, and were most likely based on the “little people” from the ancient tribes of Ireland. According to Irish mythology, the leprechaun isn’t the charismatic bearded fellow dressed in green we commonly imagine.

Some historians dispute this claim, arguing that April Fools’ Day celebrations predate the Edict of Roussillon. Hilaria, an ancient Roman festival celebrated on the March equinox to honor the goddess Cybele, is often connected to April Fools. During the celebration, people would usually dress up, imitate prominent Roman citizens and play pranks on unsuspecting individuals.

No matter how it began, we all agree that pulling off the perfect April Fools prank is no easy feat. In 1957, BBC pulled off what many consider the greatest April Fools’ Day prank ever. The famous TV show “Panorama” aired a three-minute segment about a record-setting spaghetti harvest in Switzerland. The report featured detailed information about “spaghetti trees” and how the Swiss had managed to eliminate the dreaded “spaghetti weevil”.

Since spaghetti wasn’t well-known in Great Britain back then, the fake segment successfully fooled thousands of people. Over the next few days, BBC was flooded with calls from its viewers, who were asking for more information on how to properly cultivate spaghetti trees.

On the other hand, relevant news and announcements on April Fools’ Day often get mistaken for fake stories. Google, which is well-known for pulling off some rather elaborate pranks, announced Gmail on April Fools’ Day in 2004. The size of its email inbox, which was 250 times bigger than its closest competitor, had people questioning its authenticity.
