All about APRIL

In the early Roman calendar, April was the second month but became fourth when they started to use January as the first month. The origin of it was Aprilis, meaning 'to open'. In April, small animals that were hibernating usually come out and the birds fly back northward to settle, bees and butterflies begin to gather nectar. In some parts of the world, April is planting time but in other parts, it's the harvest season.


"News" - English Grammar

We use the uncountable noun news to mean ‘information or reports about recent events’. It takes a singular verb:

The news is good about Mary. The doctors are very happy about her progress.

Not: The news are good about Mary.

Twice a year day and night fall into balance, lasting for nearly equal lengths. Known as equinoxes, Latin for “equal night,” they occur in March and September and along with solstices, mark the changing of seasons as Earth travels around the sun.
