Where does this holiday come from – from France, England, Mexico or Sweden – is a mystery, which, unfortunately, is covered with darkness. One of the influential versions of the origin of the feast of laughter is associated with the fact that initially April 1 was celebrated in many countries as the day of the vernal equinox and Easter time. Festivities on the occasion of the spring new year have always been accompanied by jokes, pranks and funny tricks. The holiday tradition lives now too: nature itself became the cause because the spring vagaries of the weather people tried to appease with jokes and sweepstakes.
Another, also common, version of the Day of Laughter is associated with the transition to the Gregorian calendar, introduced by Pope Gregory in 1582. The fact is that the New Year in the Middle Ages was celebrated not on January 1, but at the end of March, before King Charles IX reformed the calendar in France in 1563–1564. Therefore, New Year’s week began on March 25 and ended April 1.
In those days, it was also decided to have fun on New Year’s holidays. But, despite the changes in the calendar, some conservative-minded (and perhaps just ignorant) people continued to celebrate the New Year’s week in the old style.
In the 18th century, this cheerful holiday became widely known and popular. The British, Scots and French spread it in their American colonies. On April Fool’s Day, it was customary to poke fun at each other, and also to give each other meaningless errands, for example, to find and bring sweet vinegar.
April Fools’ jokes are extremely diverse and cover wide layers of both those who joke and those who joke. The most famous April Fools‘ draws have already been classified into the list of 100 April Fool’s Day Hoaxes of All Time, among which are: the fall of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, photo report about flying penguins, the landing of a UFO in London, the transition to a decimal time measurement system, change the number of pi from 3.14 to 3.0 and others.

History Of April Fool’s Day In Islam
The Muslim world usually has a negative attitude towards the celebration of April Fool’s Day, because the Qur’an repeatedly emphasizes the inadmissibility of deception. Many Islamic spiritual mentors speak of this day as the “devil’s invention of the infidels,” urging Muslims not to imitate the Gentiles and not to play each other on April 1 or on any other day.
Among Muslims, there is a widespread version of the fact that April 1 is celebrated by the Christian world as “the day of the mockery of Islam“, associated with the anniversary of the conquest of the Granada Emirate by Spanish Catholics. We are talking about the events of 1492 (in Islamic forums one can find allegations that in 2012 there is a “millennium” of the expulsion of Muslims from Spain – this error is caused, apparently, by the fact that in 1012 the Caliphate of Cordoba fell, although Islamic rule in Granada according to classical chronology, another 480 years after that).

April Fool’s Day Quotes
The hearing was live: They’ll
Give everyone around the apartment,
The salary will grow,
And the rent will go down.
Everyone will buy a car for retirement!
I wish you to smile,
From the heart always laugh!
Since April 1, all!
Happy fool you, from year to year!
Hooray! Let the cold perish,
Let the nature smile,
And let not the water in the glass!…
For delicate humor, gentlemen!…
In an effort to wash away the mold of the soul,
What sprouted in us over the winter so thick,
We begin this holiday cheerfully,
We end up somehow sad.
Let us shout: “Ivan the Fool!” Let the rage!
We do not get it, the world will not understand so far:
What is tolerant, depraved, homo-abominable,
