April 2018 Calendar | All Countries Holidays List | Global Holidays


April is the fourth month in Gregorian calendar and it has a span of 30 days. The month has a vague coincidence with the onset of autumn in certain parts of south hemisphere and spring in some parts of northern hemisphere. The same seasons get interchanged mutually in both the hemispheres in the month of October. Although the root cause of naming the month is obscure, it can be traced to the traditional reference to the season when flower buds and tender shoots of leafy foliage begin to open up in the process of growth because the name April appears to have a dormant association with the verb “aperire” which means to open. In addition, the Roman festival Veneralia is observed on 1st April (the kalends of Aprilis) in honour of Venus Verticordia {Venus, the changer of hearts} and Fortuna Virilis {Manly or Virile Fortune}. This has relevance to the month of April which is believed to be sacred to the Goddess Venus.
