HISTORY OF APRIL FOOLS’ DAY
As with most traditions, the institution of April Fools’ Day remains uncertain. Some historians say that it began in 1582. In this year, the start of the New Year officially became January 1. Previously, it had been April 1. Thus, those who still celebrated the new year in April were mad fun of and became the butt of jokes.
Some even take the idea of April Fools’ Day back even further to the fourteenth century when Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales featured a prank pulled on April 1. Many cultures had a very similar tradition and/or ceremony of playing jokes on others.
Officially, April 1, 1700, the English began playing jokes on each other that then became a tradition. The tradition spread from there into our modern-day celebration of playing jokes on others.
