Don’t Be Late!

Wake up! It’s Monday! You’re late for work!!!

April Fools!

Don’t you just love a good, harmless prank? But when and why did pranking people become the April 1st norm? There’s some debate as to the origin of this holiday, but many believe that it started in France in 1582, when the country adopted the Gregorian Calendar.  Under this new system, New Year’s Day changed from the end of March to January 1st.  Some people continued to celebrate the New Year on April 1st out of jest and stubborness.   These people quickly became victims of pranks and jokes, as the majority of society thought their actions were foolish.

Today, we prank eachother just for the thrill of it, and carry on the tradition that had begun in France over 400 years ago. In fact, some major companies have pulled pranks on all of their customers in recent years (See The Greatest Fool of All). Have you pranked anyone recently? Tell us some funny ones you’ve pulled on your friends, family, or co-workers!

Happy Pranking! (Just don’t go ruining anyone’s Chef Coats!)
