PostSubject: APRIL FOOLS DAY - PINOY STYLE   Fri Apr 01, 2011 4:55 pm



As you check your Facebook account on this calm Friday morning, you may be in for a big surprise.

Suddenly, you may read that your happily married friend’s status changed to single, or your shy and timid classmate announcing her pregnancy, or the guy of your dream liking guys, too! But before you post that violent comment, what day is it again?

But don’t be surprised. It’s just the day of the year when fun-loving Filipinos do their pranks with the legal excuse, “Happy April Fools’ Day!”

In the website www.april-fools.us, the history of April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day is uncertain. But some believed that it began around 1582 in France. A year before that,

New Year was celebrated for eight days beginning on March 25 to April 1.

However, with the reform of the calendar under Charles IX, when the Gregorian Calendar was introduced, New Year's Day was moved to January 1.

Yet, due to slow communications being traveled by foot and reaching people for several years, there are those who still celebrate the New Year on April 1. Thus, they were labeled “fools” and became subjects of ridicule, and were often sent on “fools’ errands” or were made the butt of other practical jokes. The butts of these pranks became known as a “poisson d'avril” or “April fish: because a young naive fish is easily caught. In addition, one common practice was to hook a paper fish on the back of someone as a joke.

Since then, this prank-playing continued over time on the first day of April.

In recent years, this tradition eventually spread all over the globe

In Scotland, for instance, April Fools' Day is devoted to spoofs involving the buttocks and as such is called Taily Day. The butts of these jokes are known as April “Gowk”, another name for cuckoo bird. The origins of the “Kick Me” sign can be traced back to the

Scottish observance.

In England, jokes are played only in the morning. Fools are called “gobs” or “gobby” and the victim of a joke is called a “noodle.” It was considered back luck to play a practical joke on someone after noon.

In Rome, the holiday is known as Festival of Hilaria, celebrating the resurrection of the god Attis, is on March 25 and is also referred to as “Roman Laughing Day.”

In Portugal, April Fools' Day falls on the Sunday and Monday before lent. In this celebration, many people throw flour at their friends.

The Huli Festival is celebrated on March 31 in India. People play jokes on one another and smear colors on one another celebrating the arrival of Spring.

In Poland, prima aprilis (“April 1” in Latin) is a day full of jokes; various hoaxes are prepared by people, media (which sometimes cooperate to make the “information” more credible) and even public institutions. Serious activities are usually avoided. This conviction is so strong that the anti-Turkish alliance with Leopold I signed on April 1, 1683, was backdated to March 31.

In Denmark, the 1st of May is known as “Maj-kat”, meaning “May-cat”, and is historically identical to April Fools' Day. However, Danes also celebrate April Fools' Day (“aprilsnar”), and pranks on May 1st are much less frequent.

In Spain and Ibero-America, an equivalent date is December 28, Christian day of celebration of the Massacre of the Innocents. The Christian celebration is a holiday in its own right, a religious one, but the tradition of pranks is not, though the latter is observed yearly. After somebody plays a joke or a prank on somebody else, the joker
usually cries out, in some regions of Ibero-America: "Inocente palomita que te dejaste engañar" (You innocent little dove that let yourself be fooled). In Spain it is common to say just "Inocente!" (Innocent!). Nevertheless in the Spanish island of Menorca "Dia d'enganyar" ('Fooling day') is celebrated on the 1st of April because Menorca was a
British possession during part of the 18th century.

Mexico's counterpart of April Fools’ Day is also observed on December 28. Originally, the day was a sad remembrance of the slaughter of the innocent children by King Herod. It eventually evolved into a lighter commemoration involving pranks and trickery.

The Philippines also observes December 28 as the Holy Innocent-Martyrs feast day, more commonly known as “Niños Inocentes” which is the country’s second April Fools’ Day, though, the religious community insisted that both events are not similar.

In a Manila Bulletin story published last year, Caloocan Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez said the observance of the Niños Inocentes is in remembrance of the martyrdom of infants who gave up their lives to save the new-born Savior, and is not in any way connected to playing jokes or tricks on people.

April Fools’ Day is not a well-observed day in the Philippines. But that makes it all the more exciting when people barely realize that it is a time when people crack jokes on others but will always be forgiven. After all, it is a day to have a little fun out of anything.

But remember to be cautious on cracking jokes on people as you may reap the same.

Kasabay ng aking paglaki ay nakagisnan ko na ang tinatawag nilang April Fool’s Day tuwing Abril 1 at ang Araw ng Niños Inocentes tuwing Disyembre 28.

“Hoy, ingat ka, April Fool’s Day ngayon, baka maisahan ka?” “Hoy, huwag kayong magpapautang ngayon at Niños Inocentes ngayon, baka di kayo mabayaran.” Karaniwan ko na itong narinig sa aking mga ate at kuya, pinsan at tiyuhin, sa mga kabigan at kaklase.

Noong una, nagtataka lang ako sa kanilang mga sinasabi at ipinagkikibit-balikat ko lamang ang mga ito. E, pano, hindi naman nila ipinaliwanag ng husto kung ano ito. Basta ang sabi lang nila, ang mga araw na ito ay araw ng kalokohan, kaya dapat mag-ingat.

Bakit nga ba may mga araw ng kalokohan? Sino ang nagtakda nito, at ano ang kasaysayan ng mga araw na ito? Iba’t ibang kaugaliang panloloko o pagbibiro ang karaniwang ginagawa sa araw na ito. Nariyang pag dumating ang araw na ito, uutangan ka at pangangakuan kang babayaran agad ng inutangan mo. Pag pinautang mo na, sasabihin agad sa iyo, “Salamat, naisahan kita. April Fool’s Day ngayon. He he he.” Pero katuwaan lang ito ng aking mga kababata, at minsan nagbabayad naman sila kahit papaano. Syempre, kababata, e. Paano kung seryoso talagang maisahan ka?

Teka, bakit nga ba may mga araw ng kalokohan o araw ng pagbibiro. Paano nga ba ito nagsimula? Nagsaliksik ako at narito ang ilan sa aking mga nakuhang batayan:

May sari-saring kwento kung pano nagsimula ang April Fool’s Day tuwing Abril 1. May nagsasabing agad lumaganap ang April Fool’s Day nang mapalitan na ng kalendaryong Gregorian yaong kalendaryong Julian. May nagsasabi pang ang Abril 1 ang siyang unang araw ng taon sa bansang Pransya, kaya’t nang palitan ni Haring Carlo IX ang araw na iyon bilang Enero 1, ang iba’y nanatili sa Abril 1. Yaong mga gumawa pa nito ay pinagtawanan ng kanilang mga kapitbahay, at tinawag silang mga April Fools.

May isa namang sinasabing batayan ng April Fool’s Day at ito’y mababasa sa akdang Canterbury Tales ni Geoffrey Chaucer na pinamagatang Nun’s Priest’s Tale, na isang kwento tungkol sa dalawang loko: ang tandang at ang lobo (the chanticleer and the fox), na naganap ng Marso 32 (dahil hanggang 31 lang ang Marso, ang 32 ay pumapatak ng Abril 1).

Sa ibang bansa, ang pagbibiro o paggawa ng kalokohan tuwing Abril 1 ay hanggang tanghali lamang, tulad sa Inglatera, Australia, New Zealand, Canada at Timog Aprika, at ang magbiro ng bandang hapon na ay tinatawag na April Fool. Ngunit karamihan ng lugar, tulad ng Ireland, Pransya at Amerika, buong araw isinasagawa ang pagbibiro o kalokohang ito.

Ano naman ang araw ng Niños Inocentes tuwing Disyembre 28? Bakit ito naging araw ng pagbibiro o kalokohan?

Nakabatay sa relihiyong Katoliko at Eastern Orthodox ang tinatawag na pista ng Niños Inocentes, na sa ingles ay Feast of the Holy Innocents, na kilala rin bilang Childermas, bilang paggunita sa pagpatay sa mga bata o massacre of the innocents noong panahon ni Herodes, kung saan ipinag-utos niya ang pagpaslang sa mga sanggol na lalaki dahil ito umano ang magiging susunod na hari. Napakaseryoso ng pinagmulan ng Niños Inocentes, ngunit dahil sa salitang “inosente”, uminog ito bilang araw upang magbiro sa mga walang muwang o inosente.

Katunayan, sa bansang España at iba pang bansang Latino, ang Disyembre 28 ay itinuturing na araw ng pagbibiro o kalokohan. At yaong nabibiktima ng mga palabiro o inocentadas ay tinatawag na inosente, o walang muwang. Kaya hindi dapat magalit sa mga nagbiro ang mga nabiktima dahil wala naman daw silang ginawang masama kundi magbiro lamang, dahil nga araw iyon ng mga inosente. Sa ibang kultura, ang Disyembre 28 ay itinuturing na malas na araw kaya hindi dapat magsimula ng anumang proyekto sa araw na ito.

Dalawang magkaibang araw ngunit parehong araw ng pagbibiro. Dalawang pinagmulan, ngunit ang isa’y seryoso habang ang isa’y sadyang kamalian.

Dalawang araw kung saan tayo dapat mag-ingat sa kalokohan ng ilan nating mga kaibigan, kakilala, at kababayan.

Ngunit huwag tayong mag-ingat lang tuwing Abril 1 at Disyembre 28 lamang, Dapat tayong mag-ingat sa lahat ng panahon, pagkat walang pinipiling araw ang mga seryosong manloko sa kanilang kapwa tao. Nariyan ang mga illegal recruiter, na nangangakong makakapagtrabaho sa ibang bansa ang mga kababayan natin, ngunit nasasadlak sa prostitusyon. Nariyan ang mga pulitikong palaging nangangako sa mga maralita nating kababayan, ngunit pag nanalo na ay hindi mahagilap kapag hinanap upang hingan ng kaunting tulong.

Oo, lahat ng araw ay dapat tayong mag-ingat lalo na sa mga taong nais tayong isahan. Kaya ingat.
