EXPLAINING APRIL FOOL'S DAY



Written by Dont Panic

If you thought April Fool's Day was a recent invention so brands/wacky people could be especially zany for one day only, you're wrong. This minute-long video delves into the many traditions behind the day, ranging from changing calendars to ancient Roman festivals. I mean it's never really been fun, it's just people being consistently terrible over time, but how about you get a little more informed anyway. Unless it's all fake info... ah well, I tried. Hats off to Epified for the vid.
