History of April Fool's Day

April Fool's Day is thought to have originated in 16th century France with the adaptation of a new calendar year. The New Year was originally a weeklong celebration from March 25th to April 1st. With the acceptance of the Gregorian calendar in 1582, the New Year was redefined as January 1st.
