From April Fool's Day to Easter, April is chock full of events and public holidays. But the month of April also contains weird and esoteric days that are just as much fun as pranks and chocolate.

Canonised by Matt Smith to mark his first appearance on Doctor Who, 3 April is Fish Fingers and Custard Day. Throw on your favourite episodes and try the salty-sweet dish that the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond shared when they met.

Channel your inner child and watch the feathers fly! 6 April is International Pillow Day, a worldwide event that has let participants embrace their inner child since 2008. Find an event near you on the Facebook page

Let the dishes soak and the laundry wait on 7 April for No Housework Day. If you don't know what to do with your spare time, I know a site that can help with that...

Deskfast Day on 12 April raises awareness of the importance of eating breakfast. So make sure you have a good one today, even if it is at your desk. If you're not sure what to have, it's also Toasted Cheese Sandwich Day and National Licorice Day.

If you, an intellectual, would prefer something more cerebral to celebrate on 12 April, it's also Look Up at the Sky Day. Amateur astronomers can get a headstart by checking out the ABC Starhunt series.

Life is hard, so be kind to each other on Pay It Forward Day, 28 April. Buy someone's coffee, pay someone a compliment, and don't watch the terrible Kevin Spacey movie.
