Happy Easter!

April

What a day!

Easter Sunday

and April Fool’s Day

on the same day.

Apparently this simultaneous event hasn’t occurred since 1956.

And since 1900 Easter Sunday and April Fools Day have only been on the same day in 1923, 1934 and 1945.

You could be forgiven for thinking that this Easter Hat Parade from 1955 is an April Fool. But it isn’t!

And what about the green tint on this 1925 film of crowds catching the train for an Easter day out. Surely that’s some kind of joke? Apparently not!

This 1969 film clip of the Easter Princess competition is very entertaining. The winner is nineteen year old Christine who says her main ambition in life is to “get married”. And presumably keeping her winner’s tiara balanced on her beehive.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Hope you’re enjoying a very happy Easter holiday.
