April Fools’ Day – April 1

When that first day of April rolls around, have you ever found yourself reaching for the sugar for your morning coffee, quickly realizing the sweetener had been switched out with salt? Have you taken a bite of your beloved jelly-filled donut only to find that the gooey goodness had been replaced with mayonnaise? Then you, my friend, might have been a victim of a good old April Fools’ Day prank! April Fools’ Day is celebrated every year on April 1, giving mischief-makers the chance to play tricks on the unsuspecting for that annual opportunity to yell “April Fools!” Though the day has many origin stories, you likely have Pope Gregory XII and the update of his Gregorian calendar to thank. In 1582, he switched the first day of the year from April 1 to January 1. Many refused to acknowledge the new start of the year, and were soon mocked and tricked for not jumping on board. Keep an eye out on this April 1 to make sure you don’t fall prey again. Even better? Turn the fool into the fooler and come up with a few sly tricks of your own.

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day – April 2

National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day is celebrated every year on April 2. Did you know that the average American will have eaten over two thousand peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the time they graduate high school? In 1901, the first reference was published of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread, by Julia Davis Chandler of the good ol' USA. Make this day a memorable one celebrating one of America’s classic sandwiches.
