Currently ICANN is domiciled in the US as a California non-profit.  But in
an effort to be international, we should observe April Fool¹s Day for all
jurisdictions. We should ask Staff to compile a comprehensive list of
dates for all countries, regions, languages, and cultures.

I expect the list could be large, perhaps covering over 1/3rd of the
calendar.  If you are unable to memorize it, then just assume any
announcement containing bad news is a joke.
