From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Tuesday, April 1 — also known as April Fools’ Day. Tip: Make a note to yourself so you remember:

  • Was there a lot of traffic on car lots last month? Automakers are slated to report sales.
  • Thirty-eight years ago Apple was founded.
  • And April is National Decorating Month. Feng Shui your cube, living room, or man cave.
