April Fools

April Fools

Why do we play pranks on April 1? Check out this Wikipedia article for an in-depth answer. For my money, though, the origin is less important than the practice. It’s about fun, and at least in the South, it can be a celebration of the return of warm weather. Life is serious business, and any excuse to laugh is usually a good one.

  1. After cold and unreliable March, we do need the fun of April Fool’s Day! I look back with laughter on all the pranking that was done to me by my creative children! I also carefully note the date each year for self protection. 😉
