Poisson d'Avril

 
On the first day of April, in France it is the custom to pin a picture of a fish to the back of your friend as a joke. 
 
People buy chocolate fish in sweets shops, la confiserie, to enjoy or to give away.

How funny and interesting, I never knew about this tradition! :D I wanted to do something for April Fool's today, but since I mainly worked with two-year-olds, there wasn't much I could come up with. ;D

I might have to think of something clever to trick my dear husband later today....hmmm...
