Celebrating the Fools amongst us!

So according to my Fhubbies - Uncle John's, Extraordinary Book of Facts and Bizarre Information;
It was traditional to celebrate the New Year for 1 week ending in a great big party on The first of April. However in 1564, some braniac decided to change the calendar, making the 1st of January the New Year. Anyone who had forgotten this change and showed up for the party on April 1st were henceforth considered Fools!

Well harrrrumph I say!
As today is another celebration in our house,
So frock me up in medieval garb and call me a fool...
Just make sure you're armed with a cake and some candles and no mention of my impending wrinkle collection!

Unfortunately there's no way to fool the laugh lines,
But that good ol' blonde in a bottle sure helps fool the grey!

Happy New Year to Me!
Thanks Mum and Dad
