April Fool’s Day History and Traditions [English Video]

The origins of April Fools’ Day are not certain, although several theories have been proposed. Before the adoption of the Gregorian calendar in 1582, New Year’s Day was celebrated between 25 March (the old date of the spring equinox) and 1 April. One of the most credible hypotheses is that, following the change of calendar, not everyone got used to the change and were therefore referred to as the ‘April fools’. Hence the burlesque origin of 1 April.
