Opinion: Don’t be a fool
It’s April Fools Day. Although, a day for jokes and pranks, it’s not one of my favorite celebrations.
According to the History Channel, it has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, though its exact origins remain a mystery.
After a hoax or practical joke is played on an unsuspecting victim, the prankster generally will say, “April Fools Day,” to punctuate the trick and let the subject know they have just been had.
