Try these Easter-themed April Fool's pranks this year
These people were ridiculed and poked fun at for still celebrating the new year on the old date and were labelled the "April Fools" - hence the name April Fools' Day. Based on my email inbox, numerous brands have settled on the same workaround: Just start their jokes early.
But when is April Fool's Day and how did the tradition for playing pranks begin? As we update, newer entries will be added to the top of each category.
Another theory held by some is that April Fools' Day was the result of a desire to celebrate the turning of the seasons at springtime.
Though, there is no confirmation, why 1st April is celebrated as Fool's day, the day which celebrates pranks and jokes.
So, basically, whatever the reasons may be for celebrating April Fools' Day the only fact is this is one of the best days to play pranks and crack jokes on one another without hurting them.
According to historians, Pope Gregory XIII in 1582 wished to start the new calendar from January 1, instead of the hitherto celebrations of the new year by March end. Although it originated from the Western countries, creating jokes and harmless hoaxes as become a common practice on the first day of the April month each year.
When was the last time you remembered pranking someone or being pranked at?
In 1957 the BBC aired a Panorama documentary about spaghetti crops in Switzerland, and showed a Swiss farmed picking freshly grown spaghetti. From the obvious ones like "I can tell my crush that I love her and if she curve me I can clapback by saying #AprilFoolsDay let me take my chance", to a Boris Johnson parody account cracking this - "I just phoned Theresa and told her I was resigning".
Another notable joke was carried out by fast-food giant Burger King with their "Left-Handed" Whopper, in 1998.
