The origin of the name April is uncertain, but some historians believe it comes from the Latin verb aperire, meaning to open. It makes sense since the first buds sprout on the trees, and flowers bloom every April.
Other experts theorized the name comes from the word Aphrilis, which came from the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, the Roman equivalent of Venus. For Anglo Saxons, the fourth month is called Oster-monath or Eostre-monath after the fertility goddess Eostre.

Fun April Quotes For April Fool's Day
April Fools Day is a day celebrated around the world, with roots stretching back centuries. There are two possible origins for this day.
First 1582, France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. Those in the know labeled those who failed to receive or understand the news as "April Fools" by those in the know. The other theory suggests that the day stems from the ancient Roman festival of Hilaria, a celebration of the mother of the gods, Cybele.
Have you made pranks before? Check out the "Spaghetti Harvest" hoax. It is a hilarious nationwide April Fools' Day prank by BBC in 1957. The British broadcaster ran a segment showing farmers picking spaghetti strands from trees and placing them into baskets. Many viewers called in to know how they could grow their spaghetti trees. The BBC replied, "Place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."
