Hello April!!!

Hello! Are't you all in a festive mood?
Because April has lotsa holidays. Maybe some are not celebrated by certain religions, but still, here we go.......

1st April-April fools

4th April- Easter Sunday

14th April- Pahela Boishak

22nd April- Earth Day

April Fools is a day mainly celebrated by all religions except Islam. People play pranks and jokes on each other, and when the fall for it, the person who played the trick yells "April Fools!"

Easter Sunday is a holiday celebrated by Christians. They believe that on this day, Jesus rose from death. Christians celebrate by hiding chocolate eggs all over the neighborhood, and young children believe the eggs were sent by the "Easter Bunny"

Pahela Boishak is a Bangladeshi holiday. It is the first day of the Bengali year, melas, which mean fair, are held all over the country and the fair sells Cotton candy, toys, Matir Hari Patil meaning "Clay Toy Crockeries", Vegetables and fruits, peanuts. There are also magic shows, Banorer Khela and Shaaper Khela Which means Monkey and Snake dance.

Earth Day is my favorite. It shows awareness of Recycling Reducing and Reusing. People all over the world appreciate this day. We will also be celebrating this day, I will give you..... Uh uh uh! I can't say!
