From all of us at MVD Express, Happy April Fool’s Day!
As a company that fully appreciates humor and a good laugh, we embrace this day with open arms. From silly laws to a good joke, we love keeping the mood light at work to keep our employees (and our customers) as happy as possible.
A History of April Fool’s Day
April Fool’s Day, or All Fool’s Day, coincides with the New Year’s celebrations of ancient cultures like the Romans and Hindus. One version of history states that when Pope Gregory XIII ordered the start of a new calendar with a January 1st start, people who continued to celebrate on April 1st were known as fools.
Some of the earliest reports and references to the day in literature began in the late 1300s with Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. More references pop up in the 1500s and 1600s, with some people being tricked into performing silly errands.
Of course, given the nature of the day, we have to wonder what is true and what is nothing more than tomfoolery!

Time passes quicker and harder burdens are easier to bear when laughter is present. So on April Fool’s Day, don’t be afraid to laugh and smile at something funny. It may just lighten your spirits enough to get through the day!
