Today is “April Fools Day” and and some of you are already warming up to pull your baddest stunt yet.
April Fools’ Day sometimes called All Fools’ Day is celebrated every year on 1 April by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes.
It’s that one day of the year that’s acceptable to do awful things to the people you care about and get away with it because of some bizarre tradition.
