The History of April Fools’ Day
The first recorded association between April 1 and foolishness can be found in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales (1392). In the “Nun’s Priest’s Tale”, a vain cock called Chauntecleer is tricked by a fox named Tyler.
April Fools’ Day may have been celebrated in France as early as the 16th century. In 1564, King Charles IX of France decreed that New Year’s Day would be celebrated on January 1. Previously, the New Year was celebrated on March 25 in most European towns. Those who continued to celebrate on April 1 became the butt of jokes and pranks; some believe this is where our modern traditions began.
The 18th century brought a renewed interest in practical jokes in England and Scotland, and both countries claim responsibility for introducing April Fools’ Day to their respective countries. In England, there are records of an annual custom called “fooling” during the 18th century. On March 31, 1708, Thomas Boulton published a letter in the London Journal signed with the name “Kickum” (a play on “kicksome,” meaning attractive). The letter requested that recipients respond with a kick if they found it amusing.
