The start of Clown Day
We think that there has been a Clown Day, since there have been clowns.
The first Clowns
Some four thousand years ago in ancient China, a buffoon called Yusze, served at the court of Emperor Shih Huang-ti Chiiu. And the Emperor had one day each year for his buffon or clown.
Most people would agree this would be the first documentation of a fools or clowns or buffons or jester and the first clown day.
Since then almost every society has had fools or clowns or buffons or jesters
Festival of Fools
And these societies had a day when these fools or clowns or buffoons or jesters were celebrated
So we have had a Clown Day of some form or another for a very long time
