April Fool and Writing Consultation

April fool is around the corner. While April Fool is never a big event in Malaysia, most people are getting used to prank people around them. Some people might even go extreme.

You might be worrying about April Fool (1st April).

Some of you might be planning on certain pranks for family and friends.

Truth is, I hate April Fool. I was the victim of April Fool especially in school (about 10 years ago).

However, I have developed the sense of humour and just let April Fool pass by.

Still, if you are not sure what to do on April Fool day, better stay indoor alone, and do some reading or writing.

Why not try to write about April Fool itself?

Brief history of April Fool:

The origin of April Fools’ Day is obscure. One likely theory is that April Fool’s Day comes from the Persian tradition of Sizdah Bedar, which is believed to be the oldest tradition in the world still alive, celebrated by Persians as far back as 536 BC.

Other theory is that the modern holiday was first celebrated soon after the adoption of the Gregorian calendar; the term referred to someone still adhering to the Julian Calendar, which it replaced. In many pre-Christian cultures May Day (May 1) was celebrated as the first day of summer, and signalled the start of the spring planting season.
