Hello April! This month is traditionally known for rainy showers but did you also know these fun facts?

  • April Fools' Day  (sometimes called All Fools' Day) is an annual celebration in some European and Western countries commemorated on April 1 by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes. The jokes and their victims are called April fools. People playing April Fool jokes often expose their prank by shouting "April fool" at the unfortunate victim(s)
  • The word April comes from the Latin word aperire, which means to open. This is in reference to the many flowers that bloom in the month.
  • April's birthstone is the diamond.
  • The birth flower is typically listed as either the Daisy (Bellis perennis) or the Sweet Pea
  • April is the first month of the year with exactly 30 days and the only month with an “i” in its name.
  • April used to be the 2nd month of the year and it only had 29 days!
