  • In the United Kingdom, April 1st is called "April Fool`s Day". On that day people play tricks on each other for fun.

  • In Estonia we call this day "Naljapäev". This day is full of humour and tricks. You can even play tricks on you teachers. I`m sure they won`t become cross.

  • The most common joke is to say: "Look, there`s a pig flying in the sky!"

You can tell about a trick you have played on somebody.

For Irish people March, 17 is an important day - it`s the feast(püha) day of St. Patrick -the patron saint (kaitsepühak) of Ireland.

The symbol of Ireland is the SHAMROCK( ristikhein).

In Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day, people traditionally wear a small bunch(kimp) of shamrocks on their jackets or caps.
Children wear orange, white and green badges, and women and girls wear green ribbons(linte) in their hair.

In Dublin (the capital of Ireland), there is a huge St. Patrick’s Day festival from March 15-19.

A parade, family carnivals, treasure hunt, dance, theatre and more interesting things are held during this time.
