Grab Bag - 4 Poisson d'Avril (April Fool's Day) antique postcards
Poisson d'Avril - April Fools Day - is traditionally celebrated in France with fish. There are several theories as to why. One is that April 1st is generally the day the fishing "harvest" begins. April 1st is also historically the beginning of the new year - until the King changed New Years to January 1st. Only "fools" still celebrated on April 1st.
Studying Poisson d'Avril postcards, it appears to me that there is a romantic element also. Many of the postcards say "Guess who?"
