In April, many fruit trees see their buds blossom. Among them, we can note the plum tree or the cherry tree, whose beautiful white flowers adorn all gardens until the beginning of the following month. The cherry blossom, in the form of small bouquets, announces the beginning of spring.
In Japan, where the tree, called "sakura", is mainly cultivated as an ornamental plant, the flowers are a strong symbol and mark the beginning of the school year for all school children.
People usually clean their houses in the spring and mow their gardens. The first day of April starts with April fool's day. April is the time to increase confidence, to appreciate nature, to be grateful, to be cheerful and to enhance communication abilities.

Origin of April Fool's Day
According to a legend, April Fools' Fools' Day is said to have originated in 16th century France, when the year began on April 1. In 1564, King Charles IX decided that the year would no longer start on that date, but on January 1, as it does today. Consequently, this change of date also affected the day on which gifts were given to celebrate the New Year.
Some people had difficulty adjusting to the change or simply did not know that the date of the New Year had changed, so many individuals continued to exchange gifts on April 1. To make fun of them, others took the opportunity to give them fake gifts and play tricks on them.
