HAPPY APRIL FOOL’s DAY!! Hope you enjoyed the prank!
!
Origin of April Fools Day
For centuries, the world has been celebrating April Fools day on April 1st. But do you know how it all began?
Legend says that in medieval France, the New Year was originally celebrated on April 1st. In 1562, Pope Gregory
introduced a new calendar for all Christians around the world which changed the beginning of the New Year to
January 1st. During those times, communication channels like internet, radio, TV etc. did not exist. Hence news
travelled at a slow pace and many people did not hear of this big change and continued to celebrate the New Year
on April 1st. These people were called the 'April fools'! Invitations to non-existent ‘New Year’ parties were sent
and other practical jokes were played on this day. This is how the April Fool tradition started! Interesting …. isn’t it?

Balloon boy hoax

A couple in Colorado, USA, released a helium filled gas
balloon resembling a flying saucer in the air. They then
claimed that their six-year-old son was trapped inside it. The
balloon climbed to a height of 7000 feet above the ground.
The local police and helicopters pursued the balloon for 90 minutes
and 80 kilometres. Finally, when the balloon landed near the Denver Airport,
they did not find the boy and it was believed that he had fallen off and so a ground
search began. It was later discovered that the boy was hiding in his home attic and
this prank was done by his parents so that they could come on the popular Larry
King Live show. Needless, to say, the parents had to do some jail-time for this prank!

FLOATING IN AIR!

In 1976, a famous British astronomer told radio listeners that at 9.47am
the earth was going to experience a feeling of less gravity because planet
Pluto would pass directly behind Jupiter, in relation to the Earth. He told
the listeners to jump in the air at the precise moment so that they could
experience a floating sensation. Many listeners starting jumping at exactly
9.47 to see if they felt the sensation of no gravity! Hundreds of them called
the radio station to say that they had floated in the air after jumping! One
angry caller complained he had risen from the ground so rapidly that he
hit his head on the ceiling, and he wanted compensation! Wouldn’t it be
exciting if 'no gravity' was for real?

SPAGHETTI TREE

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is known to carry
genuine news. In 1957, on a documentary program, BBC reported
that spaghetti trees were found in Switzerland - people were
actually growing spaghetti on the trees! Hundreds of viewers
called BBC to inquire where they could buy the spaghetti tree!
Imagine if you could just pluck spaghetti out of a tree and start
eating it! Wouldn’t that be so cool!

attempts to showcase some of these
ancient civilizations which have made
a huge contribution in shaping the
world as we know it today. We start
this series with the Ancient Roman
Civilization.

Historical Era

The Ancient Roman Civilization began
with the founding of the Italian city of
Rome in 753 BC. It encompasses the
Roman Kingdom (753 BC – 509 BC),
Roman Republic (509 BC – 27 BC) and Roman
Empire (27 BC – 476 AD).

The Split & Fall of Ancient Rome

In 285 AD, Emperor Diocletian split the Roman Empire into two parts as it was too big to manage. Over the next
century, Rome was reunited and split multiple times. In 395 AD, the empire was split into two for good - the
Western Empire and the Eastern Empire.
In the 5th century, the Western Empire (ruled by Rome) was plagued by internal instability and attacked by
various migrating peoples. It broke up into independent barbarian (tribal) kingdoms and thus effectively caused
the end of the Ancient Roman Civilization in 476 AD.
