"April 1", why is it considered the day of lies? Here is its origin and meaning

"April 1", why is it considered the day of lies? Here is its origin

April 1 is known as the day of lies, or rather as the day of jokes in many countries of Europe.

Where does this day originate from? There are many theories. The oldest that is known is related to the Ancient Romans, who on this date celebrated a luxurious holiday in honor of the goddess Venus.

Another theory is that of the Parliament of Augsburg, of 1530, by which the entire monetary system had to be unified. April 1 was set as the special currency day, but a few hours before this day it was postponed.

Thus, many people lost their money, being mocked and ridiculed. But what is believed to be the origin of the April Fool's joke comes from the French king, Charles IX.

This date used to be celebrated as New Year's Day, but with the change of the calendar from Julian to Gregorian in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII, New Year's Day was set on January 1.

But some people continued to lie to themselves and celebrate this day on April 1, while others mocked them.

Boston professor of history and ethnic studies Joseph Boskin says the day originated during the reign of Constantine, when a prankster named Kugel told the emperor that he could run the empire better.

Constantine took this as a joke and allowed Kugel to become emperor for one day, April 1st, which Kugel declared the Day of Lies.

However, there were unwritten rules on which the jokes were based. Thus, an adult could play pranks on a child, but a child was not allowed to play pranks on an adult.

This explanation was published in 1983 by the Associated Press, but there was a problem, Boskin had made it up as an April Fool's joke.

It took the Associated Press a while to realize this was a lie and apologize to readers. Today April 1st is celebrated in Europe as April Fool's Day and people play tricks and pranks on each other.

But, according to sociologists and psychologists, in everyday life, jokes have become rare, due to the pressure and pace of work. The ones who celebrate it the most are the French.
