In the jest of April Fool’s Day that falls on April 1, every year people across the world indulge in planning and plotting pranks for their friends for an “unforgettable” experience. It is a day when everybody tries to make a poker face, irrespective of the fact whether they succeed or not — as the experience is all that matters.

According to the historians, Pope Gregory XIII ruled the new calendar to start from January 1 back in 1582, instead of the hitherto celebrations of the New Year at the end of March, making it the most popular belief of the roots of April Fools’ Day. Moreover, it is also believed during ancient days there was a custom of merrymaking as they entered into the spring season. As a result, there is a playful atmosphere around the beginning of the month of April, and the first day of the month only adds to it with tricks and tomfoolery.
