April Fools’ Day


On April 1st in France, people play tricks on their friends, teachers, etc… one of children’s favourite tricks being to hang paper fish onto people’s backs. You can also tell them an unlikely story and shout “Poisson d’avril” at the end, to acknowledge it’s a prank.

A year ago I made this mosaic, composed of fish photos, real or made of stone, taken in Paris or elsewhere, and posted it on flickr on April 1st

Poisson d'avril French style (by Claudecf)

Poisson d’avril ! One man’s fish is another man’s poisson!

The mosaic was created thanks to fd’s Flickr Toys
Thanks to Kay, from Kay’s Thinking Cap who provided me with this great line!

  1. It’s so original! Thank you for the permission to use the montage next year for an Avril note to my friends. They will love your creativity.
