April Fool’s Day

Klik hier voor meer gratis plaatjes
April Fool’s Day is the 1st day in April.

It is celebrated in the United States, England, France, Scotland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Germany and Norway.

The custom of shouting “April Fool!” comes from the United States.

Nobody knows where  the “April Fish” comes from.

Perhaps, because April has the best fishing or because the zodiacal sign of Pisces rules in April.

Today, in sweet shops they sell chocolate fish for April Fool’s Day.

Friends send one another postcards, with some silly dialogue, with fish pictures.

Other people pin a paper fish on someone’s back without being caught. 

In the USA people pins a paper sign on someone’s back saying “Kick me.”

The most common joke is to make someone perform an unnecessary action, such as checking for an open zipper or  a missing button.

In Mexico and Spain, April Fool’s Day is on December 28 (called Day of the Holy Innocents).

Generally,  people play a trick on one another just to say : “I care you”.

April Fool 's Day (144.8 KiB)

 

Cattura

Listen to this song, now. Its words are written under the video.

 

SONG LYRICS:
Jack and Jill
Come out to play
School is cancelled
For today
And when they get there
I will say
April Fools!

Hey look down,
I’ll tell you why
Can’t you see
Your shoe’s untied
Now you’ve seen
My silly side
April Fools!

Chorus:
April Fools, April Fools
All in fun for me and you
April Fools, April Fools
Never mean or cruel

Hey look up,
Look over there
An elephant’s flying
Through the air
I made you look,
I made you stare
April Fools!

There’s a fish
On the back of you
I hope it isn’t
Stuck with glue
The giggles and laughs
Should give you a clue
April Fools!

Chorus:

So when the first
Of April comes
Remember to laugh
With everyone
And try to keep it
All in fun

Hey look down,
Your shoe’s untied
Now you’ve seen
My silly side
An elephant’s flying
Through the air
I made you look,
I made you stare
There’s a fish
On the back of you
The giggles and laughs
Should give you a clue

On April Fools!
