The meaning of "April" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa April fool?
A: There is a tradition that the first day of April each year is a day when we play tricks on each other. The person that is being tricked is called the April Fool. After we play the trick on someone, instead of saying "I was only joking" or "I was playing a trick", we just say "April Fool". Then the person knows that it was all a trick. It is all in fun and no one gets angry (usually). If you put ping-pong balls in someone's shoes so that they can't get their shoes on, or if you set someone's clock ahead and then convince them that they are late for work, those are April Fool tricks. You only trick your friends and family, and there can be a of of rivalry.

A: @Koreakimchi Hmm.. Yes, but you can use all three with anyone. It's a very subtle difference, and you would not really offend anyone, even though the tone is different. it's less about how close you are to the person like in Korean, and more about being apologetic, or if you were bragging. Like if my friend was going to Europe for vacation, I would say "I'm going to travel in April!" but if my friend is working very hard I would say "I'll be traveling in April."
Q: Qual é a diferença entre I'll be busy from this April e I'll be busy from this coming April ?
A: No difference.

"This April" can mean "this year's April" or "next April". In situations when it's unclear, "coming" is used to make it clearer, but you used "will" in your sentence so "coming" is not necessary (you can still use it though).
