The importance of April 2

April 2nd. 4/2.  Doesn’t seem like a particularly important day, particularly in 2013 when it occurs just after the festivities of Easter. But wait!

Just as Ash Wednesday (fasting) is preceded by Fat Tuesday (feasting)

and All Saints Day (Nov 1) is preceded by Halloween (Oct 31),

April 2nd is preceded by April 1, April Fools Day.

4/2, aka 42 when we strip out that excess special character, is "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything", as Douglas Adams explicated so elegantly in his 5 book trilogy. So, this April 2, think deep thoughts, or at least ponder why 42 = 9 x 6.

April 2 is “the meaning of life” day.
