Who began the tradition of
April Fool’s Day?
A. King George III (England)
C. William Shakespeare
D. Benjamin Franklin
E. Julius Ceasar
According to The Huffington Post:
“The reason the date is so closely associated with
comedy largely has to do with the long-standing feud
between the English and the French. Historians claim
that on this day in 1789, after the French people
deposed King Louis XVI, King George III of England
made an historic joke, which continued the tradition
to this day.
He pretended to step down.
After renouncing the monarchy the streets were filled
with peasants celebrating new-found “freedom.”
Hundreds were quickly arrested and imprisoned.
It was quite possibly the best prank of all time.”
