April Fools is a whole day dedicated to pranking your friends and hoaxing your family. From in-person laughs to full-on social media scares, people have gone to great lengths to create elaborate April Fools’ jokes. Nevertheless, it is said to be one of the most dislikable holidays. Over time, it has become less interactive and more for just entertainment.
People from all walks of life have celebrated this since the late 1500s. Back then, people would dress up in disguises and mock their fellow townspeople. Now it has become rare to see anyone take the opportunity to prank their friends. So many possibilities of stunts, all to waste because this day is so easily overlooked.
More people should take advantage of an excuse to embarrass others, who wouldn’t want that? It’s a day not meant for any specific group of people. Everyone who finds pleasure in fun antics can indulge in these events. If you’re one of the people that don’t like to be on the receiving end of these pranks, then become the jokester.
Not all jokes have to be a whole production, just something that will make the people around you, and yourself, have a good laugh. Even the media takes advantage of their audience on this day. Some use April Fool’s Day as an outlet to show people their personality, get attention and prove they have a sense of humor.
The point is, April Fools should be more appreciated. All things have their own positives and negatives, but people tend to overlook the positives that this day can bring. Everyone should just see April 1st as another day to make people laugh and have fun.
