Today is April Fool’s Day

April Fool's Day
Did you know that in ancient Europe, some celebrated April Fool’s Day by trading status, age or gender roles for the day?

When the Julian calendar was in use, April 1 marked the start of the new year. But after Pope Gregory the 8th created a new calendar, which is the one we go by today, January 1 became the new beginning of the year. Not everyone changed to the Gregorian calendar, and those who still celebrated April 1 as the new year were called “Fools”. In modern times, April Fool’s Day is big business. Pranks can be planned months in advance. 

Today we bring you three sapphic books with main characters who are comedians.
