APRIL FOOL'S

APRILFOOLS

April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day is an annual custom on April 1st, consisting of practical jokes and hoaxes. Jokesters often expose their actions by shouting "April Fools!" at the recipient.

April Fool's Bucket List

Jello surprise: Whip up a batch of Jell-O, toss in a straw, and let it set in clear drinking glasses until it resembles their favorite flavor of juice or fruit punch. Serve up these glasses of “juice” to your friends — who will get absolutely nowhere when they try to slurp it up through the straw.

Googly Eyes: This gag couldn’t be easier for a PG-rated gag: Get out that bag of googly eyes from the craft drawer, and open the fridge. Place a set of eyes on everything you see: the carton of milk, the veggies, all the condiments. They’ll crack up when they go in for breakfast, only to see all those little eyes staring back at them.

Put the corner of a dollar bill outside of a book so that it's poking out, but attach that small sample to a larger note that says, "April Fools!"

Passover, Hebrew Pesah or Pesach, in Judaism, is the Jewish holiday commemorating the Hebrews' liberation from slavery in Egypt and the “passing over” of the forces of destruction, or the sparing of the firstborn of the Israelites, when the Lord “smote the land of Egypt” on the eve of the Exodus. This year Passover is being celebrated from April 5th-April13th!

The holiday is often celebrated for eight days (seven in Israel), and incorporates themes of springtime, a Jewish homeland, family, remembrance of Jewish history, social justice and freedom — including recognizing those who are still being oppressed today.

One of the most important Passover rituals for observant Jews is removing all leavened food products (known as chametz) from their home before the holiday begins and abstaining from them throughout its duration. Instead of bread, religious Jews eat a type of flatbread called matzo.

World Health Day (WHD), held every year on April 7th marks the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1948 and each year focuses on a specific public health concern. In addition to focusing on the journey to achieving Health For All, which is this year's theme, WHO will observe its 75th anniversary under the theme 75 years of improving public health.
