Fools Day!

Well, fortunately or unfortunately..... my birthday falls on THE FOOLS DAY!
When i was a kid i used to go to every other class in a fancy dress with a frnd of mine(in a skool dress) to distribute chocs to teachers... n they always n always used to wonder if they gettin fooled or wat!... initially i was so pissed off with my birth date... but later i have realised that its important to be born on such vital dates as every1 can remember me even if m nt arnd... so m all happy nw :D :D

Well just to highlight the importance of the day... here are a few interesting facts about my birthday :)
  • April fools day is banned in Zimbabwe as there are already enuf tensions in the region with ever-growing inflation rates (i think currently its around 1lakh or more).
  • Traditionally, the jokes only last until noon. If you play a trick on someone after this time you are the April Fool(miiind it! :D :D)
  • It is also called All Fools Day.. so needn be only the ones who are born on the day are fools ;)
  • There was a confusion between French and Julian calendars in the 16th century... as Romans kept Jan 1st as the start of the year and the French preferred closer to Easter as the beginning of new year... but in the end French were kept in the mood of romance and changed their thoughts to Fools Day :P
  • In the Nun's Priest's Tale(14th century), Chaucer talked about 32 days after March. But readers misunderstood the line and read it as March 32 which is April 1st.

The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies, and neighbors... So its more to bring smiles on faces......Keeping facts aside..... lemme end the blog with a joke for my blogger friends:

U R the one who is CHARMING

U R the one who is INTELLIGENT
U R the one who is CUTE and
I am the One who is spreading these RUMOURS. :) :) :)
