April Fool's Day is celebrated on the April 1 every year. The day is marked with laughter and cheer as people play pranks on each other. This culture is centuries old although the exact history of the day is somewhat a mystery.

Some historians date it back to the 16th century when France underwent a change of calendar from the Julian to Gregorian. While the Julian calendar celebrates new year's on April 1 marking the Spring equinox, the Gregorian calendar celebrates it on January 1. During this change, many people were unaware of it and did not know that the new year had already begun. Thus, they became a joke when they celebrated it April 1, making the day April Fool's Day.
