Hello, and welcome to four-one-one-four! But you can call it Sister Mercy April is finally here. Unlike the first of every other month, April 1st marks the day we tell children the world is canceling summer. This is known as April Fools’ Day!
April Fools’ Day goes back to the ancient Romans, who celebrated the Spring equinox with a religious festival they named Hilaria.
Marking the end of winter’s gloom, the Hilaria festival featured the usual ancient Roman amusements, such as walking the length of the village crumbling under the weight of the Goddess statue you’re made to carry:
She’s Cybele, the mother of all Goddesses, even though in other civilizations she was known as Gaia, and Rhea, and Demeter, and broken:
But Hilaria was also known as a lighthearted holiday that encouraged masquerades, rejoicing, and public sacrifice:
Next stop in our history of April Fools’ Day, Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales was misinterpreted so that readers thought Chaucer pinpointed March 32nd as being the day a vain cock was fooled by a fox:
Which brings us to our final explanation of April Fool’s Day: most European towns throughout the Middle Ages celebrated New Year’s Day on March 25th — and France’s celebration lasted one week, culminating on April 1st. And it is said that those who celebrated New Year’s Day on January 1st made fun of the French and their foolish April 1st New Year:

It can’t be easy being married to Alec Baldwin. Truer words never spoken.
I told my son that he is going to go to school until July because of all the snow days. He asked if summer was cancelled. I said yes! Those two 50ish days we had in March, that was it.

I can’t fool my kid. At age 7, she’s already like DeNiro in Casino. I tried to trick her into thinking she’d misread the clock and that it was bedtime a half hour early. So she rolls her eyes and says, “Why’re you messin;’ with me, Dad?” I’m lucky she didn’t have Pesci kneecap me.

Olivia had an uncle born on April 1 – and he was a real fool. Never had a serious thought in his life. . . and was therefore adored by all his nieces and nephews.

My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with your site. It looks like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Many thanks

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
