April 2019

April 1, 2019

Welcome April 2019!

 

 

The 4th month of the year brings us April Fools’ Day, Earth Day, and the chance for some rain. 

 

According to early Roman calendar, April was the second month but became fourth when they started to use January as the first month.  The name originally came from Aprilis, meaning 'to open'.  In April, small animals that were hibernating usually come out and the birds fly back northward to settle, bees and butterflies begin to gather nectar. In some parts of the world, April is planting time but in other parts, it's the harvest season  Because of the nice warm weather of April, people usually do spring cleaning and start mowing lawns. The first day of April begins with April fool's day.
