4. Jokes within advertising

Believe it or not, companies also take advantage of this day to make their jokes and promote their products.

A bit of history…

During this day the jokes, they are not only through social networks but also in a personal way, there are peaky or heavy taunts, but a lot of people, who is aware of the date, know you have to be alert to what you're told so you don't fall. Or like others, yes they believe it.

But quite apart from that., do you know the true story of April Fools' Day?. The media “Truth with Ink” made a compilation of historical fragments that were disseminated in books where they tell what happened.

It all started when Herod, the king of Judea, promises a prize to all mothers in Bethlehem who have sons and who are under 2 years. However, they didn't expect to find a heartbreaking event. Cingo, one of the king's keepers, he was ordered to execute all the children who arrived..

"When are the awards distributed sir? I'm in a hurry, the chores of the house await me", was the innocent woman's question.

"Right now you will be free and owner of your will", Cingo replied, a black slave from Africa, the closest to Herod. At that moment the man pulled one of the children of the woman in his arms and slammed it into the angle of a wall, this being the signal that the other executioners expected. Heads were cut off, others thrown against the ground, as women tried to fight the strength of those muscular slaves.

more than 60 children were killed that morning. There were mothers who fainted, others who tried to fight with the executioners and those who were powerless crying in the river of blood. (fountain: Truth with Ink)

It is in this way that the Catholic Church called today as the Day of the Holy Innocents.
