    What is April Fools' Day and why do we celebrate it? The origins behind the tradition, best pranks ever and the facts

    oon April Fool's Day will be upon us, which means being on your guard to avoid those practical jokes.

    It's a tradition that goes back hundreds of years, but where did it all start?

    There are many theories but the one that most hold to links back to a pope - though it isn't a religious holiday.

    Where did it all start then? Why do we celebrate it?...and what can we do to be crowned best prankster (you know you want to know)?

    How did April Fool's Day begin?

    The change to the calendar was too much

    While no one really agrees on what happened, there is strong evidence that it is all down to Pope Gregory XIII, who adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1582 - this moved our year from March to Jan 1.

    The change was published far and wide, but some didn't get the memo. These people celebrated the New Year on April 1 and were ridiculed and seen as foolish - hence Fool's Day.

    The French would put paper fish on the 'fool's' backs and were called Poisson d'Avril, or April Fish - it's still the term used in France for April Fool's.

    This doesn't quite work out though as the Julian Calendar, established in 46BC, made January the first month of the year. Countries began to switch calendars, and it all ended up being a mess by the 1500s. Some countries started the year on different days.

    While it's not clear what calendar had what impact a lot of the theories stem from the idea of the date moving to January.
