The traditional etymology is from the verb aperire, “to open,” in allusion to its being the season when trees and flowers begin to “open,” which is supported by comparison with the modern Greek use of ἁνοιξις (anoixis) (opening) for spring.
The birthstone of April is the diamond, and the birth flower is typically listed as either the Daisy (Bellis perennis) or the Sweet Pea. Zodiac signs for the month are Aries (until April 19) and Taurus (April 20 onwards).
Happy April, dolls! May this be a month of laughter, joy, love, success, creativity, beautiful moments, beautiful things, and so much more for you!
