Today, April 1, the world celebrates the non-religious holiday April Fools’ Day or All Fools’ Day.

In honor of this holiday experts advise everyone to be on the lookout for good-natured foul play. This can take the form of jokes, hoaxes or any form of practically based joke.

The origins of this holiday are uncertain. Some believe it is related to the seasons changing, some believe that it comes from ancient cultures that celebrated New
Year’s Day near April 1 and the confusion that ensued when New Year’s Day was changed to Jan. 1.

It is advised not to take your friends, family,
coworkers, teachers or the headline of this community brief serious today. Happy April Fools’ Day.
