April Fools' in Switzerland is ... Poisson d'avril !




I love this day for one simple reason: everywhere you go, children stick paper fish on your back, hoping against all hope that you will not notice and that they will be victorious! I like playing the fool...

And so, as I sit here and type, two fish swim across my back - and as my teenage son so aptly put it... I ought to consider buying an aquarium!

I like the fact this April Fool's joke is one that doesn't hurt feelings or harm anyone. :)

At least the fish don't say "Kick Me" or anything! What a cute tradition!

How cute! I love the idea of the fish... much better than the "Kick Me " signs that we used to put on each other's backs when we were kids. Carla

I can't tell you how many times the kids at school said you have something on your shirt. I must have acted shock around 1500 times. It was fun!!

I remember when my kids were little we would attach clothes pins onto each others back hoping they wouldn't notice. Sometimes you would wonder around town with one of these things hanging off the bottom of your seater!
