Poisson d'Avril!

So, Happy April Fool's Day, or in French, Poisson d'Avril (April Fish). What? You may well ask... Wikipedia has an explanation (in French) here. All I know is that the jokes in France mainly revolve around sticking paper fish onto people's backs. I need to read that Wiki article properly...
So, as the back of the postcard says, I wish you 'good kisses and jokes for the first of April'!
The postcard is available as part of a set of French cards in my Troc and Broc Vintage Shop.
I'll answer your Hot Cross Bun questions tomorrow, as it's the traditional day for them!

As they say in France je me coucherai moins betes ce soir! I didn't know that before.

Ha! I know all about that ;) Does that mean I can eat chocolate fish today??? Have been good & saved everything for the weekend (and beyond).

Bon Avril à toi, Floss!
Thank your for your lovely comment,you would be a very happy bunny in my garden, as at the moment there'a a lot of blue!
When I was a child I used to draw colourful fishes and stick them onto my friends' back..I thought it was an old habit...but this evening mum told me that her colleague made her the same joke..while my mum put her a piece of pasta into her bottle of water..ha ha! Such silly ladies!
Hope you and yours are well!
