Happy April Fool's Day...

  (:  ¡ʎɐp ɹǝdns ɐ ƃuıʌɐɥ ǝɹɐ noʎ ǝdoɥ ı  ¡ʎɐp s,looɟ lıɹdɐ ʎddɐɥ

I have had too much fun in the Etsy forums today with April Fool's jokes popping up by the minute. Even Etsy got into it with their new banner!

Is that too funny... "Esty" not Etsy?  HA!  My favorite by Etsy was in 2008 when they featured WatchMan, a fake seller selling reproduction watches.  That was toooooo funny!

So, as you have all gotten to know me, I just I had to find out the where, why and what is April Fool's Day.  Here is the answer.  :)

"Said to be originated with the adoption of the new Gregorian calendar in place of the old Julian calendar in 1582, April Fool's Day or All Fool's Day, was once used to be celebrated as the New Year's Day. It evolved into its present form through several centuries and influenced by several cultures and has limited itself to be the fun and hilarity associated with Spring. Practical jokes and pranks are the order of the day."

Carry on with the prankster jokes and have a great day!
