April Fools Day

SpongeBob April Fools Day
Today is April Fools Day. Say alert and don't be fooled! Note if someone plays an April Fool on you after 12 noon, then they are the fool!

One of the best April Fools jokes ever was pulled off by the BBC in 1957. They aired a video of Swiss farmers harvesting spaghetti from trees. The video included interviews with the farmers talking about their success. The BBC received a huge response from viewers asking where they could buy the trees! The BBC had to respond with a statement that spaghetti trees were a rare, delicacy, and that they only grew in Switzerland. To this day, it is still remembered as one of the most successful April Fools' jokes ever!

April Fool's day is an annual celebration observed in countries around the world on April 1st. Many believe the origins of April Fool’s Day can be traced back to ancient Rome, where people celebrated a festival called Hilaria on March 25. Others believe the day began in France in 1582 when the Gregorian calendar was created. The day is now celebrated by playing practical jokes and hoaxes on each other. Common pranks include sending someone on a “fool’s errand,” trying to get someone to believe something that is not true, or playing a prank on someone. April Fool's Day is a fun way to celebrate the changing of the seasons and to bring some laughter and lightheartedness into the world. It is a day to be silly and have fun, and to remember that there is always something to smile about.
