So, guys, it’s officially been more than a year since we all went into #StayHomeStaySafe mode. Till about two weeks ago, we started seeing some hope of life slowly returning to normalcy. However, now we’re back to square one with companies telling their employees to continue to work from home. You never know, we might even go back to those eternity-long PSAs that we had to bear every time we dialled a number. With our lives remaining pretty much the same as last year, we at All About Eve worked harder to give you a calendar to make every day of this month worth looking forward to. Here’s our April 2021 calendar, to help you have a swift transition from spring to summer.
Here’s a glimpse of what we have planned for you in the April 2021 calendar.
1. Change your bedsheets and curtains
Not many people actually pay importance to changing their linen frequently. Your bedsheets are often dangerous homes to germs and bacteria that we carry with us on a daily basis. Sleeping on the same sheets for days at a stretch can thus raise your chances of catching sickness and allergies.
2. Kickstart your day with a cold brew coffee recipe
The summer calls for bidding adieu to cappuccinos and lattes and welcoming cold coffees and frappes with open arms. Moreover, the best way to tackle the morning gloom is to energise yourself with some amazing cold brew coffee.
3. Host a wine and cheese night
We know wine and cheese nights have become a regular on AAE calendars. But, what to do? This past year has been such a bummer that we’ve needed a good dose to keep our spirits high.
4. Play the biggest word on Scrabble
Did you know that Scrabble was invented by Alfred Mosher Butts, who was born on April 13th, 1899? Every year on April 13th, the US celebrates National Scrabble Day in honour of Butts. Today, the game is sold in 121 nations and played in 29 different languages.
Which word do you think can be played as the biggest word on Scrabble?
5. Watch Back to the Titanic on Disney+ Hotstar
Directed by Tom Stubberfield, Back to the Titanic documents the first manned dives to the Titanic in nearly 15 years. April 15, which happens to be Titanic Remembrance Day, would thus be a great opportunity to catch up on the film, don’t you think?

6. Submit a seasonal haiku to AAE
A haiku is essentially a type of short poem originally from Japan. A traditional Japanese haiku consists of three phrases that contain:
- A kireji, or “cutting word”
- 17 ‘on‘ in a 5-7-5 syllable-pattern
- A ‘kigo‘, or seasonal reference
7. Practise meditation or yoga in the evening
Incorporating yoga and meditation in daily life has shown results for millions across the globe. The practices, when developed into regular habits, have shown positive changes in not only physical and mental health but also in the overall wellbeing of people.
8. Clean all your makeup brushes
Here are some steps that you can follow to clean your makeup brushes:

9. Try a new dessert recipe
With so many regional and religious festivals this month, April really needs you to step up your dessert game. Ditch the age-old recipes and try something new this month. Remember the banana bread, croissants, cinnamon rolls, and cakes from last year? Yeah, you really need to step it up for April 2021.
10. Complete everything on your to-do list
There’s nothing nearly as satisfying as a to-do list that has been checked off completely. End the month on a high note by completing everything on your agenda for April 2021, thereby wiping the slate clean for May when we return with our next calendar.
