April Fool’s Day
“エイプリルフール(eipurirufūru)” is “April Fool’s Day” and which day is April 1st. You are only allowed to lie on April Fools’ Day! Why don’t you lie to your friends, teachers or even boss who you get along with? However, it should be a small lie and don’t lie to police officers and firefighters. It would be one of the communication tools for someone who you get along with. Although it’s April Fool’s Day, a person who you lied would get angry at you.
