April Fool's Day Mysteries

April Fool's Day Mysteries: Time for an update!  I love holidays--any chance to celebrate--and that's not an April Fool's joke. Here's a short list- fun and full of foolishness and mystery.

The first of April, some do say,
Is set apart for All Fools' Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.
