"April Fool's!" You'll hear Americans yell after their co-worker discovers his stapler in Jell-O. In Brazil April 1st is called Dia da Mentira or "Day of the lie,” while in France children tape a picture of a fish on their friends' backs and yell "Poisson d'Avril!" or "April fish!" The fish symbolizes a naive and easily caught (gullible) person. It's all in good fun and part of a time honored tradition dating back to ancient times.
