Whether you love it or hate it, April Fools' Day is fast approaching. Some people have been stockpiling prank ideas for months, whereas others are not as fond of this jokey holiday. But even if you aren't into practical jokes, it's fun to know a few April Fools' Day pranks to play on friends, should you feel a bit mischievous on the first of the month.
Sure, some pranks can fall on the annoying side of the equation. For instance, any pranks involving hidden fireworks or surprise air horns are probably at least a little passive-aggressive at heart. That's why I'm a fan of silly, harmless pranks for your friends. Basically? If if will induce an eye-roll and a laugh, it's worthwhile.
Not to mention, technology has opened the door for all kinds of new shenanigans. Even if your friend lives on the opposite side of the globe, you can still text them something ridiculous. And social media has made it easier than ever to slightly annoy everyone you like with cheesy humor. It's beautiful.
Just remember: April Fools' Day works both ways. If you don't want to get pranked this year, guard your phone and all internet passwords with your life. Seriously.
With that in mind, here are a few harmless and funny April Fools' day pranks to play on your friends, not matter where they are in the world.
