A Theory Regarding the Orgin of April Fools' Day

There are several theories regarding the origin of April Fools' Day, and none of them are 100% definitive. However, one does stand above the rest: The Museum of Hoaxes explains that in 1564, King Charles IX of France passed a law that changed the beginning of the year from April 1 to January 1.
News of the change traveled slowly. Those who were either misinformed or slow to make the adjustments still celebrated the New Year on April 1. As a result, they were mocked and pranks were pulled.

Happy birthday to the both of you.

For some reason blogger has not informed me of your last 3 posts you have made yet I am a follower. Weird. Been having trouble with it, no one seems to be able to answer my questions on their help forum D:

The post about my boots will be up in a moment.
