It is possible that the word April comes from the Latin verb aperire, which means ‘to open’. Therefore, if true, this month is so named because of all the things that open, or come into being at this time. Blossom. Flowers. Leaves. New life. And all the other things associated with spring.
I’ve got the spring fever. Ideas are coursing through my mind. It’s the creatives’ illness. The cure, create. The result, a harvest later in the year.
It’s April, a time to open…
It is also possible that April is named after something else.
