The History of April 1st

Most of you know what a history buff I am so I thought I would give you a quick rundown on how April Fools day came to be...

April 1st is Named “Fool's Day" after Steve April.

Steve April was born on April 1st 1579. In his lifetime he started 105 businesses. They all failed. In the process he lost all his father's assets. So everyone started calling him the “Father of all Fools.”

At the age of 19 he married a 61 year old woman! Even she ended up divorcing him because he was such a perpetual looser.

Since his last name was April and his birthday was April 1st his friends started joking around calling April 1st Steve’s day then eventually as everyone realized what a fool Steve really was it mutated into Fools Day.

Of course poor Steve in his foolishness had to listen to all kinds of stupid fake stories from his friends, much like you just did. :)

Happy April Fools Everyone.
