Sizdah Bedar is the day Tir (The Blessed day) of the month Farvardin from ancient Persian (Iranian) calendar, which is the first day of agricultural activity of Ancient Persians. Be-dar in Persian means, going out. In this day Iranians go to have fun with their families all the day long, in some sub cultures they have 14 Be-Kaar, which means 14 to work. During recent years, Jewish-Islamic people have related 13 Be-dar as the unlucky 13, which isn't related to ancient Persian culture, one of the reasons for such interpretation is that in some years,:

It is a tradition amongst the Ira­nian people to enjoy the fresh spring air of this day before ending the annual fortnightly holidays of the New Year, and to begin the work and education schedule.The tradition of leav­ing the house on the thirteenth day of Farvardin is widespread throughout Iran. It is a day that is spent outside with joy, laugh­ter and friendly gettogether. This is the last phase of the celebrations of the New Year. It is the custom of many Iranians to pass as many hours as possible outdoors. People leave their homes to go to the parks or mountains for a picnic. All kinds of food and deli­cacies are prepared with tea, sher­bet, fruits, bread, cheese, fresh herbs, noodle soup called ‘ash-e reshteh’ and herbed rice with lamb called baqalipolou and barreh are favorites. The occasion is a com­munal one and all close relatives and friends will participate. Iranian families all eat alfresco, preferably near water springs and lush green­er spots on this day. Sizdah-Bedar is the last day of the New Year holi­days. On the following day, routine life resumes; schools and offices open after almost a fortnight and life heads back to normalcy. The occasion has no religious signifi­cance and is celebrated by all. 13 Farvardin is the same as April 1 (April Fools' Day).Read below

April Fools' Day (sometimes called April Fool's Day or All Fools' Day) is celebrated every year on the first day of April as a day when people play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other. The jokes and their victims are known as "April fools". Hoax stories may be reported by the press and other media on this day and explained on subsequent days

In addition to Iran, SizdahBedar is also among the festivals cele­brated in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, India, and many oth­er parts of the world. Games us­ing horse are often chosen since this animal also represents rain. Adults and older people may play the traditional game of backgam­mon. During the picnic day of Siz­dahBedar, some people also fol­low the oldest prank-tradition in the world and play jokes on each other. This has possibly led many men and women to consider that the origin of the April Fools’ Day goes back to the Iranian tradition of SizdahBedar.
