Why A’phabet Day or No “L” Day?
The origins and the founder of the A’phabet Day or No “L” Day remain a mystery. Although we could link it to the French. Why do I say that? The word “Noel” is used by the French for “Christmas”. Adding some pun to the word “Noel”, it can be pronounced as – No ”L” too! However, there is no solid evidence to prove that the day might have originated from the French. But Punning is an ancient tradition that was common and enjoyed by people of all languages in history. Palestine weddings often seem to have had poetry duels that were majorly heavy on pun!
