What’s behind “April Fool’s Day“?
The derivation of April Fool's Day or All Fool's Day is uncertain, but the modern believe that it began around 1582 in France with the reform of the Gregorian calendar under Charles IX, where the New Year's Day was moved from March 25 - April 1 (new year's week) to January 1.
Communications were relatively slow in those days and some people were only informed of the change several years later. Still there were more rebellious people whom refused to acknowledge the adjustment and continued to celebrate on the last day of the former celebration, April 1. These people were labeled as "fools" by the public, were subject to ridicule and sent on "fool errands," sent invitations to nonexistent parties and had other practical jokes played upon them.
To CA’tizen, we remain the fools that believe in our brand of services of which persistent is a trade of the fools. To you, make no mistake that GST is impending on this Fool’s Day next year and the government is dead serious on this.
