Personally I've never seen the humor in April Fools Day, or the pranks that so often come with it. Like visiting Amazon.com today and having it be "retro." I immediately knew it to be an April fools prank, but my husband (who hates it when web pages change they way they look) almost hit the roof!
Also, this is one day where you never want to share BIG news because nobody is going to beleive you.
One of my most vivid memories of April Fools Day involved a bee, but no prank.

They will dive bomb you, and scare the pee out of you, but they would very rarely sting. Like, if you sat on one (like I have) or stepped on one it would sting, but its not going to sting for no good reason like a wasp will.
Anyway, my Daddy had gone outside one April 1st and when he came back in he had one of these carpenter bees just hanging out on his back. Just chilling, hitching a ride and all.
Well, my brother and I were trying to tell Daddy that he had a bee on his back. We didn't want him to sit down, lean back, and get stung.
Of course, since it was April Fools day, Daddy just wasn't buying into it. He thought we were trying to pull an prank on him and make him think there was a bee on his back when there really was not.
There is a happy ending to the story however, we finally did convince Daddy that he had a bee on his back and he took it back outside and got rid of it before he got stung or it got smushed.
Have you ever had anyone disbelieve you because of the Date?
