As an avid prankster, April Fools Day is one of my favorite days of the year. Most people don't think much of it and barely remember the day exists-- and this, my friends, is how the best reactions come to life.
What I like most about this random day, is that it reminds us to laugh. I'm all about creating fun and happy memories and love reminiscing about 'that one time' when I got tricked into sitting on a whoopee cushion or when my classmates pranked our teacher in drinking salty water. Memories last forever and laughing just simply makes me feel high on happiness and in a better state.
I also like April Fools Day because it taught me not to take things so damn seriously. I used to get sooo mad when the joke was on me, but after the initial shock and slight embarrassment, I learned to just laugh at myself and the situation. If I let my ego and pride win and ruin the moment, there'd be no fun in it. Plus, why waste so much energy getting your panties all up in a bunch? So not worth it.
So, let's keep the laughs going! I loved this post from the New York Times on some of today's April Fools jokes from top companies all over the world.
