In my country, this is 'celebrated' at december 28th, the Holy Innocents' Day!
But that story is easily found. It's slightly gruesome if I recall correctly.
There's also no flour here either!

The real history of April fools was when the African Moors in Granada were told to leave their homes to go on a ship, in hopes for safety but the hybrid Europeans ended up setting the ship on fire..Very barbaric act..

April fools day originated in Holland. During the 80 years war the "Watergeuzen" captured the city of Den Briel when they heard from a fisherman that the city was almost empty and ungaurded. I summorized it a little for u guys

My favorite April fools joke is the one SVT (swedish television) pulled on the whole of Sweden in 1962, they said that you would get colors on your tv if you put a pair of stockings in front of the screen.

Actually April fools has something to do with the Dutch history..


On 1 April (April fools) Filips || & Alva lost the small city Den Briel, and the Dutch people made the joke “op 1 april verloor Alva zijn bril” wich mean on 1 April Alva lost his glasses. And that was first a small joke but for some reason it became a fools day to joke around with people and it seems like it spread to lots of other countries

I'm Portuguese and have never, EVER heard of someone pouring flour on other people on April Fool's day. Get your facts right.
Although, I've seen people doing it to embarrass friends on their birthday, but that normally only happens to kids in Middle School.

ML G
ML G:
April Fools' Day (sometimes called All Fools' Day) is an annual celebration in some European and Western countries commemorated on April 1 by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes. The jokes and their victims are called April fools. People playing April Fool jokes often expose their prank by shouting "April fool" at the unfortunate victim(s). Some newspapers, magazines and other published media report fake stories, which are usually explained the next day or below the news section in smaller letters. Although popular since the 19th century, the day is not a public holiday in any country.

Aside from April Fools' Day, the custom of setting aside a day for the playing of harmless pranks upon one's neighbour has historically been relatively common in the world.

Actually, the FIRST reference we can find is in *1392.. in the 'Canterbury Tales', where, On.... MARCH 32nd (yes.. part of the joke being that there IS NO 'March 32nd.... It equates TO *April 1st)... A fox tells a spring chicken to close it's eyes, & when it does the fox throws a bag on him/throws him in a bag.. & takes him hm for 'lunch'.
So basically over 💯 yrs before.. the '1500s'. 😊💫

Wait what? Islands of "San Serriffe" are totally real. We used to go there every summer when I was a kid. I remember used to fly in to Antiqua from Fraktur, before boarding a ferry in Didone to take us to islands. Sometimes, we'd take my uncle's boat, the "Helvetica," and spend a few nights in Perpetua before checking in at the hotel's rotunda.

Ah, those were the Times...New Roman.

(Btw, for those of you who didn't get it, these are all typefaces...you dingbats. XD)
