The specific origins of April Fools' Day are unknown, but some historians think it dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. With this switch, the new year changed from April 1 to January 1.
Many people failed to recognize the switch and continued celebrating the new year according to the old calendar. These people became the butt of jokes and pranks and were called "April fools."
