    a time when you'll find your true love.

    Is "a time" proper here or "the time"? What is the difference between the two"? "a time" seems to mean "there will be many times for finding your love".
    I need the same answer for 2 as well.

    1.There will be a time when you'll find your true love.
    2. April the first is a day when people play tricks on each other.

    The article is fine in both sentences.

    It's "April the first", not "April fist".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: a time when you'll find your true love.

    I wonder what kind of difference "a" and "the" make here. Could someone answer it?

    1. is talking about an indefinite time in the future.
    2. Using "the" here would mean that it's the only day people play tricks on each other.
