Apr 02, 2015

Our last question asked (in the spirit of the "holiday"): You may have noticed what day it was yesterday. But what is it called in France, and why? It's Poisson d'Avril, or "April Fish," which, legend has it, comes from an old French tradition of observing the holiday by sneakily sticking a paper fish to another person's back.

Congratulations to communicator Dagmar Ebaugh for being the very first to answer that question correctly. Honorable mentions belong to Ken WalkerDan RosenbaumHollywood HighlandsPaul DelColle (who adds he "lived in a prank-free zone" yesterday), Francis Hinchey and Osiris for getting that exactly right.
