This week's theme is: Stories of Fun and Foolery.
Working hard and doing your best is always a postive thing, but all work and no play can really drag anyone down. April 1st is a day for playing jokes and having fun. Since ancient times people all over the world have set a side a day in early spring for a bit of light hearted fun. April 1st used to be the beginning of the Roman calendar year. Then later, when European countries began using the Gregorian calendar, the first of the year changed to January 1st. Some scholars say that people continued to celebrate the April 1st New Year and thus it became joke or a way to fool people.
We've got lots of fun light-hearted stories for you this week.
