April Fools’ Day is celebrated around the globe. In some countries, such as France, Belgium and parts of Canada, children celebrate by sneakily taping a paper fish on someone else’s back and then shouting, “Poisson d’Avril!” Translated into English, that means “April fish” and stands for a young fish that’s easily tricked. No joke!

Look for a new decoder in the next issue of Clubhouse magazine.
