April Fools’ Day (April 1st) is fast approaching, so we thought we might offer a few prank ideas for the more mischievous pandas among you (and if you’re not prone to mischief, now you’ll have some idea about what to look out for).

It’s unclear exactly where the April Fool tradition originated, but some people are more than happy to have the opportunity to play personal pranks on their friends, family members or coworkers. Similar precursor holidays can be found in Rome (the Festival of Hilaria on March 25th) and the medieval Feast of Fools in December.

Some also believe that the holiday stems from Pope Gregory XIII’s decision to restore January 1st as New Year’s day on the Gregorian calendar – the Julian calendar that it replaced celebrated New Year’s day on April 1st.
