Roots of April fools day are not known to this day, though there are some variations from where it stems. For example, it might be the April 1st in 1698 when many Londoners were tricked into coming to see "the Lions washed." It also might be as early 1381, when Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales were published, in which a depiction of Chauntecleer tricked by a fox took place on April the 1st. It doesn't really matter where this tradition comes from since it has gained worldwide popularity and gave us a chance to laugh with April fools pranks.

Best April fools pranks probably come from newscasters and newspapers. BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) once tricked the whole nation with their funny prank that spaghetti grows on trees in Switzerland. Or the hilariously good prank that Taco Bell played, assuring that they have bought the Liberty Bell, now to be known as Taco Liberty Bell. The best pranks, though, come in good spirits while causing no harm for the receiver (except being shamefully tricked, that is).

So if you are a fan of good April fools pranks, take a look at our compilation below. We don't advocate destroying people's property or hurting them (physically or mentally), but everything else is fair game! Happy pranking!
