Cheap and fun holidays in April

Updated on June 20, 2014

Things to do and celebrate in April

April is a month of celebration and holidays, despite what you might have heard. Yes, the month has its share of April showers as depicted in the delightful Felix the Cat April Maze cartoon created in the 1930s but it has its charm, too. For many, April is the first month to load up the picnic basket and head out to the fields of tulips, wildflowers, and bluebonnets. For me it's a birthday month so I am a little partial, but it is full of fun and festivities. Some you probably know but others you may not.

Be sure and watch the full video of Inky and Winky provided below as they attempt to have an April picnic.

      I find that April is a good time to holiday because many others do not think of it. There is good availability.
