Last week's "Those Were The Days" was Lisa Mitchell. April Fool's Have you ever stopped to think about why the first day in April is April Fool's day? It all started in France after the adoption of a reformed cal- endar by Charles IX in 1564. France was the first nation to adopt this calendar. Up to that time, the New Year celebration began on March 2l and ended April I. When New Year's Day was changed to January 1, some people still celebrated it on April 1. These people be- came known as April Fools. In France people who are fooled on April l are called April fish, mainly because April fish • are easily caught.
