#AprilFools

§     Watch your back because today is the day that someone may try to pull a prank on you.

§     So how did April Fools’ Day come to be?

§     One theory is that it began in 1582 after Pope Gregory XIII ordered that the Gregorian Calendar replace the Julian Calendar.

§     The change meant that New Year’s Day got moved in France from April 1 to January 1 that year.

§     When people in France continued to celebrate the new year in April, either through ignorance or a refusal to accept the new calendar, they were teased by those who kept with the change as “April Fools.”

 

#SocialMedia

§     Survey: 25% if Americans spend 10+ hours a day on social media.

§     Only 25% of those people said their time was spent on social media for business purposes.

§     Participants admitted to unlocking their phones an average of 92 times daily…that’s about six unlocks per hour.

§     Participants were also asked to step away from social media for one whole week…only 10% were successful.

 

#Pink

§     The singer came for the internet trolls for criticizing a picture she posted of her son without his diaper.

§     In a picture she posted it yesterday of her kids, Jameson and Willow checking out a pelican, she wrote, “There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there!”

§     She continued that she was disgusted at all the comments making reference to her son’s private parts and that just like any other normal mother at the beach, she didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper.

 

#CheesecakeFactory

§     This is not an April Fools’ Day joke…the restaurant is giving away free food today…$250,000 in free food!

§     Starting at 1pm our time, the first 10,000 DoorDash fans who claim a reward on The cheesecake Factory Promo Page will receive $25 to use on a Cheesecake Factory delivery order any day that week.

§     The rewards will be distributed as promo codes and will only be available for one hour or while supplies last.
