April Fools – Have a Pranktastic Day


The tradition of having a day when you can play practical jokes has been around since the Romans. They would the end of winter with the festival of Hilaria which means “the cheerful ones” in Latin.

This celebration on March 25th was in honour of Cybele the mother of the gods and was marked with games, amusements and masquerades where anyone could disguise themselves and prank their friends.

The modern version that we celebrate in the UK falls on April 1st with the game open for hoaxes, pranks, practical jokes and other shenanigans right up to midday.   Here are some of the more elaborate pranks from years past to give you some devilish inspiration.
