“The fourth month of the year was named after the Greek goddess, Aphrodite. The Anglo-Saxons named the month Eastermonath after the goddess Eoste, which is where the word Easter comes from. The Irish call this month Aibrean. Also known as the month of the Pink Moon, it is the time of the Earth opening to seeds and the budding of new growth, The flowers of April are the sweat pea and daisy, and the birthstone is the diamond. April is also the time of the trickster, the fool, and the god Loki, from northern European traditions, which is shy April 1 is still commemorated as April Fool’s Day.”
