Many countries celebrate April Fools’ Day on April 1. Sometimes the day is called All Fools’ Day.

On this day people play harmless tricks or pranks. The tricks can be played on friends, family, or coworkers. Often newspapers, TV stations and websites play tricks.

No one knows the exact date of the first April Fools’ Day. Most believe it started at least 500 years ago.


Do your own pranks!
Remember to keep the jokes fun and harmless.
