Did you know?

Three theories exist regarding the origins of the month of April’s name.  Some say the name came from the Latin word meaning “second” since April was the second month on the ancient calendar. Another claim is that it comes from “aperire” a Latin word meaning  “to open” because it represents the opening of buds and flowers in Spring.

Still other think that April was named after the goddess Aphrodite. Aphrodite was the ancient Greek goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, passion and procreation.
