A brief history

Have you ever been curious about the origins of April Fools' Day? Well, brace yourself because nobody seems to have a concrete answer. It's a mystery that has yet to be solved.


According to some historians, this day might have originated in the 16th century when France transitioned from using the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. Under the Julian calendar, the start of the new year was celebrated on March 25, the spring equinox, and the festivities would continue until April 1. However, after the switch to the Gregorian calendar, the new year was moved to January 1, causing confusion among those who continued to celebrate the start of the year in April.


During that time, information used to spread slowly (way back to the 16th century), and not everyone was aware of or willing to adapt to the change in the new year's celebration. Consequently, those who continued to celebrate the start of the year in April were frequently mocked and made fun of with pranks. Wait, what day is it today? … As part of the mockery, some pranks involved placing a paper fish on someone's back while calling them "poisson d'avril," which translates to "April fish." Jokes have evolved that we have surely fallen for once nowadays, like ours throughout the years, thinking they were real products we offer.
