Ever wonder about the origin of April fool’s Day?  We did, so we did a little digging.  As it turns out there is much speculation and no concrete answer. Disappointing we know. This wonderful little nugget, falling on the 1st of April has been popular since the beginning of the 19th century.  It is customary on this day to play tricks on your friends, family & neighbors getting them to believe ridiculous things or sending them on a Fool’s errand looking for things that don’t exist. Newspapers, the mass media, and of course social media have also gotten in on the fun propagating “fake news’ sometimes with unpleasant consequences.  For media pranks go wrong visit this site. And of course thank you to the Bigwin for a good laugh this morning.
