It’s the 1st of April: Let’s celebrate Le Poisson d’Avril!
An untied shoelace? Frozen cornflakes? Or a fish on your friend’s back?
Do you feel like making a joke or commit a foolery with one of your friends? Grab your chance today, it’s “Le Poisson d’Avril”, April Fool’s day!
Every year, in France and in many other countries, children and adults are looking forward to celebrate the 1st day of April. But why? It’s the international joke’s day! During that day everyone is “officially” allowed to makes little jokes with friends, colleagues and family.
In France, the 1st of April tradition is called “le poisson d’Avril”, April’s Fish. French children (and even adults) secretly stick a paper fish on someone’s back. If the person carries the fish on his back during the entire day without paying attention, your joke has been a real succes!
