yeah check yer calenders. tomorrow's 1st of April. that's my day. but i dunno why they call it april fool's day

PS i posted one day earlier to prove it's my day 🙂

PPS here's the history of such an important day:

April fool's day also called All Fools' Day in most countries the first day of April. It received its name from the custom of playing practical jokes on this day—for example, telling friends that their shoelaces are untied or sending them on so-called fools' errands. Although the day has been observed for centuries, there are differentexplanations for its origin. It resembles festivals such as the Hilaria of ancient Rome, held on March 25, and the Holi celebration in India, which ends on March 31. The modern custom may have originated in France when theGregorian calendar, which moved New Year's Day from March 25 to January 1, was adopted in1582. Those who continued to celebrate the endof New Year Week on April 1 were referred to as fools. The timing of the day also may be related to the vernal equinox (March 21), a timewhen people are said to be fooled by sudden changes in the weather.

 

There are variations between countries in the celebration of April Fools' Day, but all have in common an excuse to make someone play the fool. In France, for example, the fooled person is called poisson d'avril (“April fish”), perhaps in reference to a young fish and hence to one that is easily caught; it is common for French children to pin a paper fish to the backs of unsuspecting friends. In Scotland the day is Gowkie Day, for the gowk, or cuckoo, a symbol of the fool and the cuckold, which suggests that it may have been associated at one time with sexual license; on the following day signs reading “kick me” are pinned to friends' backs. In many countries newspapers and the other media participate—for example, with false headlines or news stories.

PPS2 it's time to celebrate it, let's have some soup!
