Origin of April Showers Day
Our research did not find the creator or origin of this day. However, we realize that this holiday has been celebrated for many years. There is a lot of documentation to prove that April Rainy Days "really exist.
We are wondering if this holiday was created by industrial greeting cards. We found homage to this holiday here- (Internet Electronic Greetings) that says "Hey, it's April Shower Day! So enjoy the month's sunny skies! April and sudden showers create conditions for the flowers to bloom."
This holiday is considered as a National Day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this date. Even though we didn't, this is still a public holiday to celebrate. Therefore, why do you be fun and celebrate it with your family? It is so great!
The proverb "March wind and April rain bring forth May flowers," dates back to 1886, and the phrase "Sweet April rain / Spring May flowers," was written in a poem in 1610, is the basis of a commonly heard phrase today: "April showers bring May flowers." It can be traced back to Chaucer, who is centuries earlier in the General Prologue, first part writer of The Canterbury Tales, wrote: "When that April, with his shocks suggested the fall of March was rooted in the old tree."
April rains are the rains that arrive in the Northern Hemisphere in early spring in April. Heavy downpours often occur at this time, which is caused by the position of the jet stream moving northward and causing a large depression that brings rain and strong winds from the Atlantic Ocean. On April Showers Day, most people gather to commemorate this phenomenon and expect see whether it rain or not? However, it will most likely happen.
