FRENCH LESSONS: Poisson d’Avril

Today’s French Lesson is technically a day late, as yesterday was officially le poisson d’avril [the fish of April], or April Fool’s Day. According to this article, the holiday of pranks may have even started in France. I saw some really clever internet jokes yesterday, but I have to say that commenters were a bit of the party-pooper variety. It’s far more fun falling for it, even if it’s short lived. Stay tuned tomorrow – I’ll share my favorite April Fish!

French Lessons is an ongoing series where I teach you French words and cultural lessons while beefing up my Illustrator skills.

  • You might have seen my instagram of the babies with fishies on their backs…the closest we get to April fools ;)

    • Yes, so cute! I actually had never seen the paper fish until then. They were in the article I linked too.
