April Fools' Day is celebrated in many countries on the 1st of April every year. It is also in certain circles referred to as 'All Fools Day', April 1 is not a national holiday, but is widely observed as a day when people play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other.
For example the French and Italians traditionally tack a paper fish on each other's back as a trick and shout 'april fish" (poisson d'avril or pesce d'aprile - in their respective languages).
The earliest recorded association between April 1 and foolishness can be found in Chaucers Canterbury Tales (1932). Anyway there is lots more history on this, just google it!
