Today is April Fools Day! I have written this blog today to tell you a bit more of the origins of April Fools Day. I also would like to embrace the fun and laughter of the Fool.
To me when the Fool crosses my path I think of the card which represents the Fool.
The Fool is looking upwards to the sky (Infinite possibilities). He is also usually carrying a stick with his pack tied to it (His pack is small and just contains what he needs). The Sun is shinning (It is a good day). He is walking to edge of cliff (He is not afraid to take the leap or plunge). He also has his dog with him (Dog represents loyalty, devotion and service. He is not alone.) There is a flower in his hand (He is walking the path of beauty). It represents a powerful new beginning and consequently an end to something old in your life. It is risky but an exciting challenge ahead! I like the Fool card its not everyone’s path but can be very fortuitous for those willing to take the leap.
Origin of the word Fool.
Middle English: from Old French fol ‘fool, foolish’, from Latin follis ‘bellows, windbag’, by extension ’empty-headed person’.
The root of fool is Latin follis, which originally meant ‘bellows, windbag’, and came to mean ‘an empty-headed person’, in the same way that windbag does in English. The use of fool to mean a jester or clown also goes back to the Middle Ages. People in the 16th century seem to have been particularly aware of the ways in which someone may come to grief through lack of wisdom, especially in their dealings with others. A fool and his money are soon parted a fool at forty is a fool indeed, and there’s no fool like an old fool all come from this period. Two centuries later foolish behaviour was still a matter for concern—in 1711 the poet Alexander Pope published the line which has become proverbial, ‘Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.’
I also found a fantastic definition of the Historical Fool if you would care to have a click.
But here is the definition of how April Fools Day came about.
April Fools’ Day will be celebrated the world over to 1 April and sure enough, everyone will be more careful to avoid being fooled or embarrassed. Even as there are multiple theories regarding the reason of celebrating the day of pranks and jokes, one folklore, dating to 1582 is related to the Gregorian Calendar, which was adopted by Pope Gregory XIII, who declared 1 January as the beginning of the New Year. Before that the last day of March was observed as the beginning of a year.
However, many at the time, chose to ignore the Gregorian Calendar and continued to welcome New Year at the end of March, hence were mocked by people on the next day – 1 April. While many pranks – good and bad – have been witnessed on the occasion, news outlets too have joined the prank playing bandwagon, and have published “untrue stories” that end up being hilarious. However, they do clarify in some way that the article was intended as a joke. Nonetheless, you can also celebrate the day, with some fun pranks or by simply sending a message to friends and family.
Here are some quotes I thought you would enjoy
“Men are April when they woo, December when they wed. Maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.”

“The first of April is day what we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year.”
Mark Twain (1835- 21 April 1910).
