April fool's Day is a
"for-fun-only" observance .
Nobody is expected to buy giftsor to take their "significant other " out
to eat in a fancy restaurant.
Nobody gets of work or school. It's simply a fun little holiday, but a
holiday on which one must remain forever
vigilant , for he may be the next April Fool!
celebrated in different countries
In France today,
April first is called "Poisson d'Avril." French children fool their
friends by taping a paper fish to their friends' backs. When the "young
fool" discovers this trick, the prankster yells "Poisson d'Avril!" (April

In Scotland, April Fool's Day is actually celebrated for two
days. The second day is devoted to pranks involving the posterior region of the body. It is called
Taily Day. The origin of the "kick me" sign can be traced to this
Mexico and many Spanish-speaking countries have
Innocent's Day, on December 28, to make "innocent" a person with jokes and
hoaxes. The origin for the pranking is derived from the Catholic feast day

A good prank for most university's is to
print up a bunch of fake
leaflets advertising a non-existent restaurant that has
cheap eats and offers free food with the coupons printed on the leaflets.
Most colleges have a student union, so the leaflets can be dropped off
there and pinned up on various bulletin boards around campus.
When this is done, you can sit back and watch the
marks wandering around looking for their free lunches.
Go Fish, Goldfish
When you are at someone's house and they
are having a party or people over, go to their main bathroom and put about

or they let them stay in there until someone scoops them out and they will
end up with a dozen goldfish!
You'll need a little bit of lightly
sticky glue for this one--I suggest simply using a glue stick and smearing
it.Put the glue on someone's seat--imagine the trouble they'll have
