Can't stop laughing, can you? We neither. But coming back to why the day is celebrated. Some people tell a different stories about it. Many historians celebrate the history of this day about 438 years ago when France adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1582, leaving the Julian calendar. Where the new year used to start from April 1 in the Julian calendar, it shifted to January 1 in the Gregorian calendar. At the same time, it is said that even after changing the calendar, many people could not understand this change and they were celebrating the new year on April 1.
