On the 1st of april, in our town, Francavilla in Sinni, in the south of Italy, only we children celebrate the “Pesce d’Aprile” ( The April Fish Day) . At school we make jokes to each other. For example, this mornnig I asked my mate :”Do you know… (a strange name)? When he said: “who?” I answered: “The Pesce d’ Aprile!”. Sometimes we send someone in not existing place, we hide some objects or attach a little picture of a fish on the back of some child and so on! The most common joke is to ask:”What have you got on your head?” and when the other realize that there is nothing, you say:” Pesce d’ Aprile!”
The tricks and the jokes continue on the next day, the 2nd of April, that we call “la chiave del due” ( the key of the two).
WE HAVE FUN IN THIS WAY!
HAPPY PESCE D’ APRILE TO YOU ALL!
Here are some of our April Fish pictures:
