Why April Fool’s Day is celebrated on April 1: History of April Fool

The history behind April Fools’ Day is unknown, and there are many hypotheses regarding its origin. However, the most plausible theory links it back to the late 16th century, when Pope Gregory XIII proposed the implementation of the Gregorian calendar. When the Gregorian calendar came into force, the year began on January 1. This replaced the practice of starting the year at the end of March according to the Julian calendar. France became the first country to adopt and implement the new calendar.

Despite the news being broadcast, some individuals were unaware of the change or refused to comply with the new changes. They kept celebrating New Year’s Day on 1st April. Thus, people following the Gregorian calendar started ridiculing and ridiculing these people. The general lesson was that those who refused to follow the new calendar were considered fools and those who did were ridiculed. In this way the tradition of April Fool’s Day was born on 1st April.
