April 1- the day everybody calls April Fools day. The day you play prank on people. The day you have fun.

The origin of the day is not so concrete. Some say the name originated to make fun of people in Roman Empire, when they celebrate Spring Day prematurely in April rather than May 1. Some say it originated in France to bully those oldies who celebrated the New Year on April 1 even after King Charles changed it to January 1.

Anyways it has become a tradition that whatever you do that day becomes a action of a fool. But some people are born to break the rules.

On April 1, 1891, the Wrigley company was started.

On April 1, 1976 Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started the Apple Computers. And they showed why world will not be the same after Apple.

On April 1,2004 Google introduced Gmail to the world and it changed the way people looked at emails.

April 1 is the birthday of Otto Van Bismarck,Edgar Wallace, Abraham Maslow, Stephen Fleming etc.,

Somehow I get a feeling that April 1 is not the day of fools but the day on which success written all over

P.S: Looking for some more April 1 startups and successes… Give your list as comments will update this post.
