April Fools Day -
Wednesday April 1, 2020

cards/flowers : As the story goes, in 1564, France was one of the first nations to make January 1 officially New Year's Day, instead of the last week of March which was previously observed. In 1582, the Pope followed suit. Those who went on celebrating April 1st were mocked. As the zodiacal sign was the fish, The French placed dead fish on the backs of one another. Traditions vary from country to country.

Banks only : Commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus instituted the Holy Eucharist (Lord's Supper) celebrates and His washing of the disciples' feet Maundy Thursday is not an official public holiday. But since it is the day before long Friday, many people has their workday shortened, and banks are closed in the afternoon.

Catholic or protestant : The First Council of Nicaea (a gathering of bishops in the early days of Christianity) wanted to find a day to commemorate the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. This commemoration had to be linked to Jewish holiday traditions, since the last supper of Christ was believed to be a Jewish Passover meal. But the Jewish calendar is based on lunar and solar cycles, so the Easter celebration had to follow the same calendar.
