Initially the second month in the early Roman calendar, April took its name from the Latin word “Aprilis,” meaning “to open,” signifying the opening of buds and blossoms in the springtime. With the adoption of January as the first month of the year, April became the fourth month. In Greek mythology, April is associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and the month is named after her.

April is a time of renewal and growth, as small animals that hibernate come out of their caves and birds fly northward to settle and start their families. The buzzing of bees and fluttering of butterflies can also be seen as they gather nectar from the season’s first flowers.

In different parts of the world, April can mean different things. For some, it is a time for planting new crops; for others, it is the harvest season. But one thing is sure – April is a time to celebrate humor and laughter, as it is designated Humor Month.

April’s birthstone is the diamond, a symbol of strength and clarity. The zodiac signs for April are Aries and Taurus, both known for their determination and resilience. The birth flowers for April are the sweet pea and the daisy, which symbolize purity, innocence, and new beginnings.
