0864562- April Fools

  1. 3. What is April Fools? <ul><li>Unlike most of the other non-foolish holidays, the history of April Fool's Day, is not totally clear. </li></ul><ul><li>There really wasn't a &quot;first April Fool's Day&quot; that can be pinpointed on the calendar. </li></ul><ul><li>Some believe it sort of evolved simultaneously in several cultures at the same time, from celebrations involving the first day of spring. </li></ul><ul><li>The day is marked to play jokes on friends, family members, and neighbours for fun. </li></ul>
  2. 4. <ul><li>In the 16th century, France celebrated the New Year just like we do today, except they celebrated on April 1st. In 1562, Pope Gregory changed the calendar to the one we use today and from then on, the New Year began on January 1st. Lots of people did not know about the new calendar, or they chose to ignore it and kept celebrating on April 1st. Everyone else called them April fools and played tricks on them. </li></ul>
  3. 5. <ul><li>Some of the practical jokes are: </li></ul><ul><li>Put food coloring in milk. </li></ul><ul><li>Superglue coins to a sidewalk. </li></ul><ul><li>Go with a couple of friends, stand near some busy street corner - stare and point up at the sky. Watch the reactions of people around you! </li></ul><ul><li>April Fools' practical jokes should be done in good fun and not meant to harm anyone. The best jokes are the clever ones where everyone laughs, especially the person who had the joke played on them. </li></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>Simple ideas of practical jokes: </li></ul><ul><li>Minty Delicious </li></ul><ul><li>Scrape the cream out of Oreo cookies and fill them with white toothpaste. </li></ul><ul><li>Time Warp </li></ul><ul><li>Turn all the clocks and watches forward one hour. Your 'rents will get up an hour earlier to get ready for work as you snooze for that extra hour. </li></ul><ul><li>Mix It Up </li></ul><ul><li>Mix up the spices and sauces for some tasteful fun. Pour sugar into the salt shaker and put the salt into the sugar jar. </li></ul>
  5. 8. How many people actually do something on that day? <ul><li>200 people used for sample </li></ul>
