嗯╭(╯^╰)╮哼,虽然今天是愚人节O(∩_∩)O哈!但是乃也要愚个对的人吼吼吼···

今天呢,追加个环节嘛,毕竟是个节日···这么短这么简单的文章,乃们要给我回答个很厉害的问题!

what's  the meaning of  the “April fish”?

Don't Be an April Fool! 整人有理,只在愚人节!

 

If it is the morning of April 1 and you see some money on the ground, perhaps you should think twice before you pick it up. It might have been glued there by someone keen to turn you into an “April fool.” Remember: It is the first day of April, a day when people around the world enjoy playing tricks on each other.


In the 16th century, the Roman Catholic Church decided that the calendar year in Europe would begin on January 1, instead of the original date of April 1. Some people were slow to accept the new rule, and others called them ignorant or stubborn. They became the first April fools.


The tradition of playing tricks on this day most likely started in France. Victims there were known as “April fish,” possibly due to the ease with which newborn fish could be caught in the spring. Nowadays, it is still a custom among French children to tie paper fish to each others’ backs on April 1.
