April Fools' Day, also known as All Fools' Day is not a national holiday in England. The idea is to trick other people, to try to make them believe things that are not true. 1) Although most of the tricks have been used for a long time, they often succeed.
The simplest pranks usually involve children who, for example, tell each other that their shoelaces are undone. 2) Sometimes people are told that their jackets have been torn or they are sent on a false business errand. 3) They produce sensational news on television, radio, and in the press. 4) Those who continue to play jokes in the afternoon are April fools themselves.
Several theories have been put forward about how the tradition began. 5) So the origin of the "custom of making April Fools" remains uncertain and unknown.
