Unlike most holidays,the history of April Fool's Day,sometimes called All Fool's Day,is not totally clear.There really wasn't a "first April Fool's Day"that can be pinpointed on the calendar.Some believe it came from celebrations involving the first day of spring about 500 years ago.Originally,new year was celebrated at the end of March or April 1st,but them the day changed to Jamuary 1st.Some people in the countryside did not get the news and continued to celebrate new year's on April 1st.People began to call these people "April fools."Today it is a lighthearted celebration when people play jokes on each other.

A woman decides to have a face lift for her birthday. She spends $5,000 and feels pretty good about the results. On her way home she stops at a news stand to buy a paper. Before leaving she says to the sales clerk, "I hope you don't mind me asking, but how old do you think I am?" "About 32", was the reply. "I'm actually 47", the woman says happily. A little while later she goes to a McDonald's and asks the counter girl the same question. She replies, "I'd guess about 29." The woman replies, "Nope, I'm 47." Now she's really feeling good about herself. While waiting for the bus home, she asks an old man the same question. He replies, "I'm 78 and my eyesight is going. Although, when I was young there was a sure way to tell how old a woman was, but it requires you to let me put my hands down your panties. Then I can tell exactly how old you are." They waited in silence on the empty street until curiosity got the best of the woman and she finally says, "What the hell, go ahead." He slips both hands down her panties and begins feeling around. After a couple minutes of this activity she says, "Okay, okay, how old am I?" He removes his hands and says, "You are 47." Stunned the woman says, "That was amazing, how did you know?" The old man replies, "I was behind you in the queue at McDonald's".
