April Fools' Day is very similar to the Korean
which literally translates thusly:
Mahn = "Unexpected"
Oo = "Fool"
Jeol = "Festival"
And, it is similar to the Chinese festival/day:
say: /yu2 ren2
which literally translates thusly,
Yu = "Fool(ish)"
Ren = "Person"
Jie = "Festival"
understand it, in Korea, Mongolia,
and Vietnam students usually try to fool their teachers, literally
making a fool out of them. It's all in fun, of course. In North
America, however, people try to play tricks on their family and friends.... and,
maybe teachers, too. But mostly people (not only children) try to
fool/trick their loved ones. Again, it's all in fun. Chinese seem to
do the same as the Americans on this day.
I hope you have a Happy April Fools' Day!
