Each year, as April 1 approaches, children and pranksters around the world begin gleefully planning the hoaxes and practical jokes they will play on unsuspecting friends, coworkers and family members. While not exactly an international holiday, April Fools’ Day is recognized in many different countries, and it’s more than just a day of cheap laughs: When you prank your friends and family, you’re actually carrying on a time-honored tradition that has been handed down through cultures and centuries for well over 500 years. What’s the best trick to play on your child, best friend, spouse or coworker? If you really want to push their buttons, tailor your prank to their Sun sign! Read on to find out the best tricks that are sure to get the goat of your Zodiac sign.
The Crab has a strong attachment to their home, and especially to their kitchen. A great April Fools’ Day joke for this sign is to scatter fake ants or, better yet, cockroaches throughout the kitchen, hiding them inside dishes, pots and cupboards. Cancer will think there’s an infestation when they go to make dinner. Another great prank is to swap Cancer’s house key with one that looks very similar, but doesn’t fit the lock. They’ll become more and more frustrated and confused as they keep trying and failing to unlock their door. Finally, try boiling all the eggs in the refrigerator and then replacing them in their carton. When Cancer goes to make scrambled eggs or bake a cake, they’ll be shocked to find the eggs don’t run out of their shells as expected.
