April Fools Day — Do you know why the first day of April is called “April Fools Day?” It was set aside to ridicule those who were still celebrating the new year in March/April long after Ancient Roman law makers decreed to make January the first month of the year instead! The people that refused to acknowledge the “new” date of the new year came to be known as “April Fools.” The custom of fooling and playing cruel jokes on friends and relatives on that day became popular and spread throughout the European continent. This custom is still alive and well today, especially in America!
Despite the insistance of modern society to the contrary, March/April is still according to the Most High, the beginning of the year! YHWH doesn’t change — the month of March/April which He named ABIB is still thebeginning of the year!
