Nobody knows exactly how this holiday appeared, but vague references to April Fools’ Day can be found around the 1500s. However, this holiday started to be popular in 19th century. Many have tried to get the hold of April Fools’ basis but only got to a few theories, none being totally accepted and proved to be real.
A popular belief is that in mid 1500s, France decided to reform its calendar and moved the first day of the year to January 1 from the end of March. Some people refused to adapt so they ended up being called April Fish and jokes were played on them.
Another theory says the holiday has its roots during the reign of Constantine, when a group of court jesters and fools told the Roman emperor that they could do a better job of running the empire and wanted to try. Constantine was intrigued and amused so he allowed a jester to be king for one day, who passed an edict calling for absurdity on that day, and the custom became an annual event.
Nowadays, April Fools' Day is celebrated throughout the Western world. It’s the time when people play pranks and try to get others to believe various and ridiculous things.
