APRIL FOOL’S DAY!......April Fool’s Day also called
All Fool’s Day has been celebrated for centuries by different
cultures. Some historians speculate that April Fool’s
Day dates back to 1582. At that time France switched from
the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar as called for
by the Council of Trent in 1563. People who failed to get
the news or failed to recognize that the start of the new
year had moved to January 1st continued to celebrate it
April 1st and so they became the butt of jokes and pranks.
There are also those who think April Fool’s Day was tied
to the vernal equinox or the first day of spring in the Northern
Hemisphere when Mother Nature fooled people with
changing and unpredictable weather. Today people have
gone to great lengths to make up elaborate hoaxes for the
radio, tv, newspapers and internet with the intent to fool
people on April 1st.
All that being said, make no mistake, we are NOT fooling
about our Aerobic Angels classes which are held every
Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 am at
the Phase II Clubhouse. Join us and bring along a friend.
