    Japokuwa siku hii i.e tarehe moja April, ndo inaishia ishia nilifikiria itakuwa si vibaya tukijadiliana hapa ili kupanua uelewa wa siku hii ambayo inakuwa maarufu siku hadi siku, mwaka hadi mwaka sasa.

    Mimi binafsi sielewi background ya siku ya wajinga (fools day) ni nini, sijawahi kusoma au kuelimishwa mahali popote pale kwamba siku hii ilitokea mahali fulani au chanzo chake labda ni tukio fulani lililotokea miaka ya huko nyuma zaidi tu ya ikifika tarehe 1/4 kila mwaka husikia watu wakiita siku ya wajinga na hutumia siku hii kutoa au kupeana taarifa za uongo na uzushi bila watoaji habari kuchukuliwa hatua zozote zile ikiwa ni pamoja na kupelekwa kwenye vyombo vya kisheria, kuadhibiwa (say na wazazi kama umewadanganya siku kama ya leo au boss wako ofisini etc) au rafiki yako kukuchukia baada ya kumpa habari za uwongo zaidi ya kubakia anacheka tu na kuifurahia siku hii!

    Lakini hata nahivyo kwa uzoefu wangu, siku hii huwa naona ina masherti fulanifulani kama yafuatayo;

    1. Sikukuuu hii hudumu kwa masaa kadhaa, nafikiri kati ya saa sita usiku hadi saa nne asubuhi....kwa maana kwamba haitakiwi isherehekewe siku nzima (i.e 24 hours)

    2. Mtu anayesherekea siku hii kwa kutoa uwongo au taarifa yenye mkanganyiko inatakiwa atoe kitu kama disclamer au angalisho fulani kwa wapokeaji wa taarifa hiyo ili wale ambao huwa wamejisahau wasije tumia taarifa hiyo vibaya na kusababisha madhara makubwa.

    3. Siku hii huendana na kutolewa habari nyingi sana za uongo au za kutisha au kufurahisha sana na hupelekewa mtu yeyote yule bila woga wala kufuata taratibu fulanifulani /protocol etc

    Hii ni kufuatana na uzoefu wangu kama nilivyosema pale mwanzo,sasa naomba hapa tuwekane sawa kwa yeyote ambaye anajua yafuatayo kuhusu siku hii ya wajinga;

    1. Fools day ilianza mwaka gani?

    2. Fools day chanzo chake nini na nani mwanzilishi?

    3. Na kwa nini inasherehekewa tarehe 1 April kila mwaka?

    4. Je, fools day inatambulika kimataifa au ni Tanzania tu? Na kama inatambulika je, kunadocumentations zozote au signed agreements au conversations au tamko lolote la kuitambua siku hii?

    5. Sheria zetu zinaitambua siku ya wajinga?

    6. Nini masherti rasmi ya siku hii (i.e dos and don'ts)?


    Sababu mojawapo iliyonifanya niweke huu mjadala hapa ni kuona baadhi ya members hapa pia wanaitumia siku hii vibaya na kuona wengine pia wanamind kuona baadhi ya taarifa wanazopewa leo hazina ukweli na wengine they just conclude Leo ni siku ya wajinga kwa kila habari inayowakanganya leo!

    So tukipata undani wa siku hii, hope itatusaidia sana kuilewa vizuri siku hii leo na miaka ijayo!

    April Fool's Day History
    The history of April Fool's Day or All Fool's Day is uncertain, but the current thinking is that it began around 1582 in France with the reform of the calendar under Charles IX. The Gregorian Calendar was introduced, and New Year's Day was moved from March 25 - April 1 (new year's week) to January 1.
    Communication traveled slowly in those days and some people were only informed of the change several years later. Still others, who were more rebellious refused to acknowledge the change and continued to celebrate on the last day of the former celebration, April 1. These people were labeled "fools" by the general populace, were subject to ridicule and sent on "fool errands," sent invitations to nonexistent parties and had other practical jokes played upon them. 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.
    This harassment evolved over time and a custom of prank-playing continue on the first day of April. This tradition eventually spread elsewhere like to Britain and Scotland in the 18th century and was introduced to the American colonies by the English and the French. Because of this spread to other countries, April Fool's Day has taken on an international flavor with each country celebrating the holiday in its own way.
    In Scotland, for instance, April Fool's 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 Fool's Day falls on the Sunday and Monday before lent. In this celebration, many people throw flour at their friends.
    The Holi 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.
    So, no matter where you happen to be in the world on April 1, don't be surprised if April fools fall playfully upon you.

    Thanks mkuu Balantanda kwa kahistoria kafupi!

    Lakini bado naona bado kuna maswali ya taratibu, sheria kutambua siku hii? Je, serikali zetu au sheria zetu zinatambua uwepo wa siku hii? au these celbrations are just informally recognised? what if based on the joke played on this day, I get involved in a crime, will the law protect me in this case?
