Have you ever wondered why April Fool’ Day is even a thing or why it got its own day?

Have you ever wondered why April Fool’ Day is even a thing or why it got its own day??

“On April 1, 1700, English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of April Fools’ Day by playing practical jokes on each other.

Although the day, also called All Fools’ Day, has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, its exact origins remain a mystery.

Some historians speculate that April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. People who were slow to get the news or failed to recognize that the start of the new year had moved to January 1 and continued to celebrate it during the last week of March through April 1 became the butt of jokes and hoaxes.

These pranks included having paper fish placed on their backs and being referred to as poisson d’avril (April fish), said to symbolize a young, “easily hooked” fish and a gullible person.

April Fools’ Day spread throughout Britain during the 18th century. In Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event, starting with “hunting the gowk,” in which people were sent on phony errands (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird, a symbol for fool) and followed by Tailie Day, which involved pranks played on people’s derrieres, such as pinning fake tails or “kick me” signs on them.” ~ www.history.com

The month of March isn’t just about celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the start of Spring.

It’s March—Happy New Year, ancient Romans!

Welcome to the third month of the year—or, if you were born before 150 B.C., the first! According to the oldest Roman calendars, one year was ten months long, beginning in March and ending in December. It may sound crazy…………. READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/

It’s the best month for basketball (but worst for productivity)

For civilians, on the other hand, March is known for one thing above all others: brackets. March Madness, as the NBA calls it, runs from March 11 to April 2 this year, and the safest bet you can make is that lots and lots of people will be distracted…… READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/

It’s also the best month for vasectomies

March Madness is a cherished time to reacquaint oneself with the couch, especially during the early tournament days when dozens of games unfold consecutively. In other words, it’s the perfect week to recover from a vasectomy! READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/

March was named for war—and lives up to its title

So, if so many months were named for their Latin numbers, why wasn’t March called… unumber? Firstly, because that sounds ridiculous, and secondly, because the Gods had dibs on it……READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/

Beware The Ides of March unless you’re a cat

We’ve all heard it uttered, but what does “beware the Ides of March” actually mean? On the Roman calendar, the midpoint of every month was known as the Ides. The Ides of March fell on March 15th. This day was supposed to correlate with the first full moon of the year (remember, winter didn’t count then) and marked by religious ceremonies…….

Super Bowl Sunday is Almost Here!

“Everyone knows that the Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year. But there’s a lot even the biggest football fan may not have heard about the big game. Here are craziest and most interesting Super Bowl facts to keep you going until kickoff!”……….https://www.rd.com/culture/super-bowl-facts/

The ball is crafted by hand in the U.S.A.

No ordinary coin will do….. Don’t even think of flipping a penny or quarter to start off the Super Bowl. Each game gets it own unique coin crafted by the Highland Mint. The front of the coin features the Lombardi Trophy along with the helmets of the two teams playing. Super fans can purchase a replica coin after the game.

Each team gets a lot of balls. Over 100 each! Learn more: https://www.rd.com/culture/super-bowl-facts/

The players drive in style!

What really happens during halftime?

Super Bowl = big bucks………..You might have known this Super Bowl fact already, but getting to the big game isn’t cheap. The average cost of Super Bowl 50 tickets in 2016 was over $4,700, says Brisa Trinchero, founder of shoowin.com, a ticket sales site. But not back in the day…Tickets for the very first Super Bowl in 1967 cost an average of $6, which was apparently too pricey for many. According to Trinchero, there were 30,000 empty seats!

Halftime performers make how much? Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and even Beyoncé didn’t get paid a single dime to perform at past Super Bowls. But don’t feel too badly for them. Trinchero shares that although they don’t get actual cash, the exposure can be worth tens of millions of dollars, and often the halftime show scores higher ratings than the actual game.

No e-tickets here….Unlike attending most sporting events today, the Super Bowl only issues and accepts paper tickets, says Trinchero.

It wasn’t always “super”

The Lombardi Trophy

It’s good to be family—or a friend

Those crazy-expensive ads…. This is another Super Bowl fact you’ve likely heard about before: Those ads are big money. On average, a 30-second Super Bowl spot runs in the millions. The most expensive of all time? A $12.4 million ad by Chrysler in 2011.
