Yeaaaah, kinda tradition now. Anyways, are you planning to do anything either irl or online this April Fools? If so, share if you are (and details if it relates to irl). Or do you just not care about April Fools at all? And not do anything as a result? Is it a normal day to you? Either way, discusss :D

      In the UK, the tradition is that April Fools' Day only lasts until midday for some weird reason. Although I never really DO anything for April Fools', it's always nice either being fooled myself - I was veeeeeeeery gullible when I was younger, and still am to a certain extent - or to watch other people be suckered in to believing the new iPad has 3D technology or something else daft.

      I just like getting up in the morning, going online, and seeing how long it is before I realise what day it is!

      I'm not that fond of it... Though I did find some cruel amusement in ruining pranks others were trying to pull.

      Like in my 6th grade class there was someone who's birthday was April 1st.... so the teacher tried to prank us.... with her help. My nose has always been pretty sensitive scent-wise... And the teacher tried to say we weren't getting lunch due to recent events (and those recent events? well let's just say it woulda made sense were it not illegal) and I smelled something...
      "They're bringing pizza because it's someone's birthday."
      As if on cue.... that happened. I headdesked, and everyone else was torn at being happy about the food or mad at me for ruining it.

      I don't do that anymore, but it's pretty hard to prank me. XD

      I like April fools day because it's fun.

      IRL most probably, but I'll likely pull a prank on one of my Best friends.

      Online, that's kind of hard to do and I don't want anything going out of hand. So, no for online pranks.

      Pinch punch first day of the month. No returns ;D

      I don't do anything for this day irl because no one I know has the right sense of humor to appreciate it. I've always wanted to take a rubber band on put it on one of those hand held sprayer things some sinks have and wait for someone to turn on the faucet, but I never remember to except when I'm somewhere that doesn't have one of those things. :|

      I just tell jokes or set some pranks now and then throughout the day, it's the tradition right?

      I prefer Poisson D'avril over April Fools personally. Ever since I learned about it in French, I just thought it was better. -slaps a fish on everyone's back- :) But I hate AFD honestly. I've had some really rude pranks pulled on me in the past that just ruined the whole thing for me.

        It's a normal day to me. Jokes and pranks are pretty lame now mostly obvious.

        I hate April Fool's. I don't like how far people take it. There's a point in which what you're doing has evolved beyond "this is a funny prank" to "this is outright rude"...maybe you cross the line when you conspire with someone else to pretend that you got someone pregnant, which happened last year with a guy I liked. I just can't stand pranks.

          I don't really pull April Fool's Day pranks. But I love seeing what others have in store.

          Yep, and if you pull a prank on someone after noon, the you are considered the fool!

          I don't really do anything for April Fools day, it is just a normal day for me.

          Last year my friends tricked me into watching Twilight. It was really stupid how they pulled it off, but they did.

          They happen to be stopping by this afternoon, so hmmmm.

          I usually don't do anything on April Fools Day, and I tend to become much more skeptical during this day as well as if I wasn't skeptical enough. I'm just too lazy and I'm not really the type to be pranking anyone, really.

          Probably not. I've grown out of April fool's already. So, not this year. I'll just check the forum pranks...if it's happening anywhere this year.

          April Fools Day isn't that much fun anymore. It was fun when I was in middle school when I fooled my friends about a giant kangaroo coming to school (literally, they took it seriously lol). But now, it's just a normal day like no other.

          So, no. I don't plan to do anything on April 1...

          Anyways, are you planning to do anything either irl or online this April Fools?
          My friends and I made a chocolate fudge cake with a whole bottle of laxative last night and we're going to bring it to school and sneak it into others' lunch. ^____^

          My sister's birthday is on April Fool's so I always end up doing something for her. ;)

          (and by that I mean unscrewing all of the bolts on her bed so when she assumes I forgot and goes to lay down at night her bed collapses :B)

          Friend: Who?
          Me: LOLOLOL
          Friend: What?
          Me: WHO! HOO! OWL! GET IT?!

          I LOVE APRIL FOOL'S DAY. <33 My friends always prank me because I'm apparently such an easy target and I dunno, I think it's a lot of fun. I'm a horrible prankster myself though, haha.

          April Fools! I don't know what I'm going to do today, tbh. I'm likely to get pranked as I'm a gullible person. I might pull a prank of my brother though. *evil laugh*

          I totally forgot about April Fools until I saw this thread twenty minutes ago and then proceeded to hastily throw together a gag theme. XD

          I love April Fools. It's the one time of year where my natural talent for lying and deceiving people is halfway acceptable. I also like to go all out to make gag themes for all of my profiles at various forums. :D
