April Fools’ Day

April Fools’ Day

April Fools’ Day has a history that many believe goes back to the late 1500’s. Historians have suggested that when calendars switched from the Julian to the Gregorian, moving the first of the year to January 1, not April 1, some people missed the switch. Missing the switch, many continued to celebrate the first of the year on April 1, making them “April Fools”. Ever since then April Fools’ Day has been about practical jokes. As we hit April 1 it is a good time to look at some “nutrition hoaxes.”
