​The April Fool's Day is also called All Fool's Day, which is a traditional festival in some western countries. On that day, whoever you are - men or women, old or young - can fool or play trick on others for fun. The origin of April Fool's Day has various versions. A consensus reached that it originate from France.The King Charles IX in the 16th century decided to use Gregorian calendar, which regard January 1st as the beginning of a year instead of April 1st of that in the Lunar calendar.

However, some people who stick to the tradition reject the new calendar, continuing to celebrate new year on April 1st. So, other people send them fake gifts and invite them to join fake parties in order to make jokes on them. In Britain, Australia, Canada and some other countries, the kidding on the April Fool's Day usually stop at noon, while in America and France it last all day long.初心/编·最好的时光

愚人节又称万愚节是部分西方国家的传统节日 在节日当天无论男女老少都可以互开玩笑互相愚弄以获得乐趣 愚人节的起源有很多版本 最主流的说法来源于法国 十六世纪国王查理九世决定采用格里高利历以每年的1月1日为新一年的开始以代替旧历的4月1日 然而一些守旧派却拒绝新的历法继续在4月1日庆祝新年 于是人们就送他们假礼物并邀请他们参加假聚会以此愚弄他们 在英国澳大利亚加拿大等国 愚人节的玩笑一般只持续到中午 而美国法国的玩笑却一般持续一整天
