Month of April

April is the fourth month of the year, has 30 days, and is named after the Greek goddess Aphrodite.

April was originally the second month of the year in early versions of the Roman calendar and consisted of 30 days. It became the fourth month consisting of only 29 days when January was designated the first month of the year around 450 BCE. The month became 30 days long again when Julius Caesar reformed the calendar.

Holidays in April

The word holiday has differing connotations in different regions. It can exclusively be refer to the nationally, religiously or culturally observed day(s) of rest or celebration, or the events themselves. While the word may refer to the period of time where leave from one’s duties has been agreed.

The concept of holidays is also often originated in connection with religious observances. The intention of a holiday was typically to allow individuals to tend to religious duties associated with important dates on the calendar. In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities.

Meanwhile few of holidays in April are: Reconciliation Day, International Children’s Book Day, National Ferret Day, Pascua Florida Day, World Autism Awareness Day, California Poppy Day, National Tartan Day, Name Yourself Day, Winston Churchill Day, etc all in this month.
