April Fool's Day

Mark Twain once said: "The first of April's the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year." Do you agree?
What do you know about this day? Click here, listen and learn about how it all started.
Watch this video - it is one of the best hoaxes of all time. Can you imagine that many people really believed what they saw in the "documentary"? What was the hoax about?
What about you? Are you going to play any tricks on anyone?

Yes I will play some tricks. It's very funny. It's wrong, because it's only one day in the year. In april Fool's day is better if it is sunny outside.

I agree with what Mark Twain said. All I know about April 1st is that it's the one day in the year, where people are "allowed" to joke around with others. The thing is, I'm not sure I like the jokes so much, because it's mostly fun only for the person who plays them on others. Sometimes the jokes can get out of hand and really hurt your feelings. I don't play tricks on people on the 1st of April. Well ok... I do ... but only the small innocent pranks that don't hurt people's feelings. Otherwise I steer clear of pranks.

I agree with what Mark Twain said.
April fool's day is a day celebrated in many countries. It's the day when people prank or play tricks on others. I know that there are also many well known tricks that were performed on this day, but some of them don't seem funny to me because they must have scared a lot of people. For example the hoax of the tower of Pisa falling over when many people contacted the station. On the other hand I read about the 1965 BBC hoax of smell-o-vision (which is suppose to be a television from where you can smell things that were playing on it). Many people contacted BBC to tell that they have seen it.
I can't really imagine that people actually belived the hoax of the spaghetti trees.
