It’s April Fool’s Day! Have you Checked Your Back for a Kick Me Sign?


April Fool’s Day is not a national holiday but it is observed every year by many who like mischief.  In Second Life it might be a bit difficult to play practical jokes on friends unless you have rights to move or modify their objects or buy cheap little gadgets that blindside your targets and make it look like they are saying random and embarrassing things in open chat. This tool could be a riot in the right hands and a griefer attack in the wrong ones.

Other practical jokes include the cruel kind like, “I’m breaking up with you for your friend” or “Surprise, I’m pregnant!” followed by a pause for reaction and the ever so cliché “April Fools!”

 No matter what it is you decide to do, make sure it is worth the laugh, a slap or loss of friends and lovers.

The SL Enquirer kicked off this day a little early in order to get this published on time. Lanai decided to go undercover and ask unsuspecting avies some very inappropriate questions for a reaction. Little did they know  SLE was behind it and they would become April Fool’s Victims for your entertainment.

Here’s what happened.

*Warning, this mischief contains some sexual style questions not suitable for the uptight.

Get Prepared. April Fool’s Day is Tomorrow- Mikile Vinciolo Reporting…


With March headed to its finale at midnight tonight, I’m thinking of how quickly this month has past, beginning a new one.

With the arrival of April, we traditionally expect showers for the entire or the prevalent part of the month. There is also Easter, celebrating the death and resurrection of the Christian God, which is symbolic of the winter's departure and the arrival of spring.

April also happens to be the month of April’s Fools. April’s Fools day is celebrated by some and dreaded by others. It falls on the first day of the month, a prelude to the joyous nature of spring. It happens also to be a day for pranksters to revel in their madness and put their best prank foot forward.



But, for those such as myself that are inquisitive about the creation of this day, I have discovered that the origins of this day is highly debatable.

According to Discovery News, there are several tales as to how April’s Fools day began. One such story began with Pope Gregory XIII creating a new calendar for adoption. The new calendar ultimately changed the celebration of the New Year from the first of April to January 1st.

April’s Fools day rooted from pranks being played on individuals that refused to recognize the new calendar change, by those who had.

Another variation states that the Roman Empire celebrated the arrival of the god Attis, on a day labeled Hilaria, or Roman Laughing day.

In India, the equivalent is Holi Day, or the colourful celebration where revelers are showered with coloured powders, and celebrate their Hindu beliefs jovially. The Hindu also are known to poke fun at non-Hindu believers during this festival day.

With this day celebrating the prankster in us all, I wanted to know how others celebrate the day, and what would be an ideal prank to play on a family member or friend.

So I asked a series of individuals, "How do you celebrate April’s Fools day?"
