 April Fools' Day 


April Fool's Day is on April 1st every year.  It seems to be celebrated all around the world, at least in the countries that I have been to. 

April Fools' Day is very similar to the Korean festival/day:

만우절 (萬愚節)

say: /mahn-oo-jeol/

which literally translates thusly:

Mahn = "Unexpected"

OO = "Fool"

Jeol = "Festival"

 

And, it is similar to the Chinese festival/day:

say: /yu2 ren2 jie2/

which literally translates thusly,

Yu = "Fool(ish)"

Ren = "Person"

Jie = "Festival"

 

As I 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!

Sincerely,

Leon.
