All Fool's Day is celebrated in many countries throughout the world by the clever and the naive on the 1st of April. People use this early spring day to play pranks and tricks on their friends and family. Growning up I had a friend whose mother loved this holiday. She had sent her daughter to school with a bag lunch that was covered up with trash (as if she had sent the wrong bag) or served a white table cloth dinner with a food dome that revealed a dead animal. Often the media has gotten in on the fun with the BBC reporting on Spaghetti trees in 1957 or Taco Bell buying the liberty bell. Here is a fascinating list of the top 100 April 1st hoaxes. So on this first day of April be on the lookout for tricks and don't get taken in.
Happy April Fool's Day!
