Happy April Fool’s Day! Even though it’s kind of a tiny holiday, it’s always been one of my favorites. When I was little, elephants were my April Fool’s Day joke of choice: there’s an elephant on your head, there’s an elephant behind you, etc. You get the idea. Comic gold, right?!? So elephants have become the symbol of April Fool’s Day for me. I still text my family pictures of elephants and put elephant toys here and there on April Fool’s Day.
The elephants have even become a big part of some of our most important life events which have coincidentally happened on April Fool’s Day. April 1st is our wedding anniversary (and yes, 10 years later we are still “fools in love!”). Much to our wedding coordinator’s dismay, I got some elephants and wedding outfits at Build A Bear and had them all dressed up and waiting as a surprise at my parents’ seats in the sanctuary at our wedding.
Last year, our first big inspection of our new still under construction house was on April 1st. My husband was sure to take some pictures with a strategically placed toy elephant to commemorate the occasion.
Such happy and special memories on such an absurd holiday! So have some fun today – whether or not elephants are part of your celebration.
