April Fools... or Poisson D'Avril !

April Fool's with Theo and Colette

April Fool's Day is a holiday celebrated around the world. In France there is an April Fool's prank of secretively putting a paper fish on the back of an unsuspecting friend. The person being pranked (in our case Theo the cat)  is then called a Poisson D'Avril, or the "April Fish".

It's so common in France that many bakeries and chocolatiers make fish shaped pastries or chocolates to celebrate the first of April. Yum!  April Fool's Day just got a lot tastier!
