Poisson d’Avril

Practical jokes mark this day and Poisson d’avril is the expression shared following a successful tease. One explanation for this day is April 1 marks the opening day of fishing season, which was considered somewhat of a joke as few fish were to be caught so early in the season. Like fishermen who attempted to catch the elusive fish, now one tries to catch friends in a joke.
