According to the Merriam- Webster dictionary, the origins of April Fool’s Day is unknown.  Even though that might be the case, there are many people that look at the day like it is a holiday.

I asked our readers for the best pranks that they ever pulled or had pulled on them.  No one responded with a prank that was pulled on them.  Here are their responses

I told a friend who was graduating from high school in 2021 that Governor Bullock told parents because of the pandemic students would have to repeat the year. The look on her face was priceless

The fabled Jackalope is a favorite April Fools Prank.

Years ago the kids dad was at his brother's house and their steps outside were built wider than usual well he stepped through that part on accident. His sister -in - law was in on the April fool's joke, so later that evening when his brother got off work he called him and said by chance you have accident insurance, his brother said yes why? He said well I'm gonna need extensive surgery to correct what happened when I fell through your front steps. Omg his brother felt bad and was in a panic. Needless to say it was an April fool's joke. Ha!) To this day we have to bring it up to him.


Let me know if you try any of these and how they work.  If you have a different prank that you do, let me know and I will use it for a future story.

Our boys drew horrified faces on the eggs in the egg carton and word bubbles begging not to be killed. I thought that was a pretty good joke.

When my husband and I were newly dating my Mom gave him Oreos filled with toothpaste. He was too afraid to say anything and kept eating them.


Mindy Hender

Told my husband that I had taken my vehicle in to have my tire aired up because it had gone flat and that they charged me for premium air. The panic, confusion, etc was hilarious!



Judy Sivertsen

I put a little pancake batter on the griddle and the flat lid off a quart canning jar. Then more batter and cooked the pancakes and loved watching the kids try to eat them. I enjoyed every minute.

Was that Bigfoot?

When I was about 8 years old, I replaced the tobacco in my Dad's Copenhagen with coffee grounds prior to him going out on the tractor all day. That night when he came home, he tried to have a sense of humor about it, because he knew I was so excited about what I thought was such a clever trick at the time! Years later, he told me he always kept an extra can in the tractor. I was glad to know that. My adult mind would not consider that a good trick to play on anyone today.
