April Fool's Day or April Fools' Day?

1st April is coming soon and creative teams of some agencies are busy creating the Fools' Day advertisements,  cards, mailers or pranks.

Here's a tip for those confused about the correct usage of the term:

April Fools' Day: CORRECT

April Fool's Day: INCORRECT
April Fools Day: INCORRECT

It is also known as All Fools' Day.

Got this interesting fact from Wikipedia:
Traditionally, in some countries such as Canada, New Zealand, the UK, Australia, Cyprus, and South Africa, the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool" and taunted "April Fool's Day's past and gone, You're the fool for making one."
