April is the fourth month of the year. It was originally called Aprilis by the Romans possibly named after the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Aprilis also meant "to open" alluding to the seasonal blossoming of flowers and trees around springtime. It’s a time of planting and spring cleaning.
After July, April is the second rainiest month of the year bringing about the popular expression “April showers bring May flowers.”
April's birthstone is the diamond symbolizing purity and love. Its birth flower is the daisy, often connected with innocence and gentleness.
April is the month of April Fools' Day, Earth Day on the 22nd, Easter Sunday (though not always), Poetry Month, Frog Month, Tweed Day on the 3rd, and International Dance Day on the 29th. April babies are meant to be active, attention seeking, friendly, hasty, adventurous, and loving.
