Get ready, ’cause it’s April Fools’ Day!

March is drawing to a close, and that means April Fools’ Day is fast approaching. This amazing and funny celebration of the prankster in all of us is celebrated every year on the 1st of April.  It’s the glorious time of year where people play practical jokes on each other without fear of retribution(within reason). It sounds unbelievable, but the Fools’ Day dates back to the fifteenth century; a French poet made the first reference to the holiday in 1508. Among the first tricked people were British, who wanted to “see the Lions washed” in the Tower of London on 1 April 1698. They were directed to the non-existent “white gate” to see a non-existent ceremony!

Since that time, April Fools’ Day has become extremely popular all over the world, and people try not only to play pranks on each other, but also to compete to see who performed the best practical joke of the day. During this holiday, you should be aware that Newspapers, Magazines, Television and Radio stations are not sacred and try their best to prank their beloved audience too. Some of the holiday pranks become classics, and can be played even apart from April 1, such as shoes glued to the floor, a pushpin on the chair, or reversed salt and pepper containers. Nevertheless, with every year people get more creative in concocting unforgettable practical jokes. Look at this collection of inspiring pranks for April Fools’ Day 2015 and have some fun with your friends.
