March is coming to a close, which means one thing for many people: April Fools' Day is coming. The very first day of April is when you're most likely to get pranked yourself or pull a prank on someone else - and pretty much everyone wants the latter situation. In the last few years, it seems like pranks have gotten a pretty bad name. This could be chalked up to the fact that the internet takes everything up a notch, meaning there are some truly awful pranks that have been played on others that never should have happened. Or it could be because, well, some people just don't have that sense of humor. Whatever the case, let it be said: there are some harmless April Fools' Day pranks people will actually enjoy.
After all, pranking other people just for the fun of it on April Fools' Day is a tradition that has been going on since the year 1700, and maybe even before then.
