April Fools' Day It Is! - Poem by Olivia Slemmermann

Its origins are uncertain
A celebration most certain.
At the turn of the seasons
The vernal equinox the reason
In medieval European regions
The Feast of Annunciation,
The Romans and Hindus,
Were free to choose
The first day of April a cultural celebration
Dawn the New Year by ancient tradition.

Fixed now by popular demand
New calendar the reason command
Thus belief it stems the creation
Of the Gregorian Calendar, meant organization
New Year, at the beginning of April was gone
In its place a new date was set upon
By Pope Gregory XIII in 1582
Be celebrated January first, 'twas decreed to.

France that year, adopted the reform
'Twas hard to make the population perform
According to a popular explanation,
Many had nay heard about its creation,
Many others refused to accept
Continuing the celebration they kept
To the first of April they did.
Thus on 'fool's errands' they were bid
By and by the traditionalists were sent
By the reformists' trick they went
Chasing something false to believe
Oh, what tangled webs were spun to deceive!

Till eventually, the practice
Did spread in Europe gratis
The New Year, the beginning of April was gone
The practice of hoax on that day born
The most light hearted of days
Caught on and known for hoax plays
All Fools' Day as it's sometimes be known
Throughout the world for practical jokes alone
Popular practices in hilarious mood
Sending someone on a 'fool's errand, ' include
Looking for things that don't exist;
Playing pranks, and getting people with tricks
Believe ridiculous things and false myths.
Famed today as April Fools Day, it is.
