April Fools’ Day is celebrated since the 19th century, though the popular tradition is not a public holiday. This day of trickery would probably be the only celebration when people do not wish for a day off as they can pull off a number of practical jokes on their friends from school and colleges to colleagues at workplace. There are a number of theories like French Revolution or Julian calendar behind the origin of April Fools’ Day, but none of them is as concrete and amusing like the change in the Gregorian calendar.
The historians pinpoint Pope Gregory XIII to be the mastermind behind the All Fools’ Day. It is believed that he adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1582, which moved our year from March to January 1. Despite the significant change being widely notified through aggressive advertisements, few people missed it, and they celebrated New Year with enthusiasm – naturally appearing foolish paupers.

But the day is one of its kind when the people celebrating can create new history (yes, every family and friends’ circle have their own crazy April Fools’ Day history).
