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.
Sensual Taurus adores luxury and relaxation, and values little more than quality sleep in a soft, comfortable bed. Trick them on April Fools’ Day by sprinkling graham cracker crumbs in their bed. They’ll toss and turn, wondering why their normally soft sheets feel so scratchy. You can also slip a sheet of crinkly plastic beneath their pillowcase, so they hear a loud crinkling noise every time they shift positions. Another good trick for this food-loving sign: Replace the sugar they use in their morning coffee with salt, and watch them pucker up when they take that first, much-anticipated sip. (If you want to be sweet, have a normally sweetened cup ready for them to drink.) Another great prank to play on a Taurus is to box up all the food in the refrigerator and cupboards and hide it in another room, and then giggle as the hungry Bull searches in confusion for something to eat.
