Happy New Year! (April Fool)Story goes that April 1st, several centuries ago, was the day celebrated as the New Year.
Then, at some point, the Christian Church decided to change the date to make it more Christian somehow, so it was decreed that the new year was now January first.
But news traveled slowly back then so there were some areas that didn’t adapt as quickly as others. Apparently, France was chief among them (note the Fleur de Lis in the symbol above) so these April revelers became known as April Fools.
So, Happy New Year to all.
