Happy April Fools!

April Fools day has its origin in many different cultures from Rome, India, and Medieval Europe. New Years during the middle ages was celebrated on March 25th. It also used to be that New Years was celebrated week long ending on the April 1st. The people who celebrated New Years on January 1st made fun of the people that celebrated later in the year. Eventually you were considered a fool if you celebrated New Years on April 1st. Many different traditions surround April Fools Day such as if you did any April Fools jokes before noon you were considered the April Fool. I guess that makes me the fool for posting this a (little) after noon April 1st.
