PRANKS AND JOKES ON APRIL FOOL'S DAY

THE  His neighborsr the Wilson family Of Curnrnirtg, Georgia

Alan pulled off this prank perfectly. "He took a big wild nuishroom$" S. Wilson says. e anci spray-painted it bright red. Ttteri he secretly planted it in Our flower bed, It took cs two days to notice it, and, stunned by its beauty, we took; a picture and told the kids not to touch it, We were afraid it might be poisonous, When Nan's daughter came over and touched our kids got all upset. That's when Alan came over hee-hawing about the whole thing," THE REACTION:                all got a big laugh out of it--especially when we found out our ather neiolmbars got a blue one!"

THE PERPETRATOR: Nathan H. , age 14, of Chandler, Arizona,

THE VtCTtM: His monu Lynne, Talk about hair-raising' On April Lynne says, rqathan began complaining during dinner that his head was itching like crazy. "When looked at his scalp, I encountered the warSt case Of dandruff I'd ever seen.

Apparently, a friend had poured salt into his hair as a prank--an,d now my son was using that to poll a prank on mer

THE REACTION: I-vnne immediately instructed Nathan about the proper shampoo and

scrubbing method. Nathan listened for a few moments, then burst into laughter,

THE PERPETRATORS{ Barry and Kim L, of Sun Prairie, W.sconsin

THE VICTIMS: Their three kids

There'S a          drawback; to this trick: the perpetrator Suffers a ong with everybody else--but early risers should find               worth the 105t sleep, Barry sprang this one on his kids last April after they switched his sugar for salt the year before. knew the kids would be expecting something," says Barry, "SO here is what I did, AS usual, we got the three Children up for school, My wife and I were all ready for work, The           were a little        slow getting dressed, bot they all made it to the breakfast table in time to eat--at leastaccording to the clack, When breakfast was Over, I asked my daughter to open the               patio curtains, and when she did, her brothers and she saw a large sign that     read,      3

THE  "A definite family Kodak man-tent"

THE VICTIMS: Anybody trying to use the kitchen sink faucet

There are good reasons why this prank was cited by dozens of readers. It's harmless, extremely effective and a Snap to pull Off—in short, the quintessential April Fools' prank. The prankster need only find a rubber band, wait for a moment when the kitchen is empty, and then slip the rubber band over the sink sprayer handle so that it is stuck in the on position. Carefully aim the nozzle so that it sprays oot--onto anybody who turns on the faucet,    REACTIOr•u we victim need extra coffee to wake up

THE VICTIMS: Cynthia R, (now a mom herself) and her three siblings, of Pete/torough, Ontario, Canada

"On the night Of March 31st, my mother wa ted until we were all sound asleep in our separate rooms," Cynthia recalls.       some paint--and this is the part that still amazes us—she sneaked into each Of Our rooms and gently carried and placed each at LIS into the bed Of another.'

THE REACTION: *'In the morning, She reveled in our confusion. My brothers weren't too keen on the pink ruffles they had to endure!" THE VICTIMS: Adolts and kids were fair game.

We've all heard at—or tried—some form Of this Bart Simpson *trick' but we gat a chuckle Out this wild animal version nonetheless. TO pull it Off, Simply leave your victim a convincing-sounding message (either an paper ar an an answering machine) from a cenain "Mr. Lyon." who has called about an urgent matter la missed lunch date is good far extra laughs) and would like a return call as soon as possible, Mr. Lyon's number? The phone number for your local

THE REACTION: *It's fun watching him bite each pair off of the string with his teethr"

The second trick is just as good (as evidenced by the number Of readers Who Suggested it), even if the perpetrator might not get to see it in action, Just sew up the fly on a dean pair of underwear, make sure the victim drinks plenty of morning juice and coffee or tea, and wait. (This is especially effective if you know the victim uses larg4 public  like the ones found iri schools and office buildings.) The Challenging part; ensuring the victim selects the doctored pair in the rnnrnirtg.

THE REACTION: At best—total embarrassment. At worst-ave      even want to think about it.

THE PERPETRATORS: Callie            12, her best friend Megat'% 12, and Calhe is Susan, Of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

THE vrCTIMS: Callie and Megan's classmates

Callie pulled this one on her class, with some help from her teacher, in honor at her birthday„ March 31. little before lunch," says Callie* *Mrs. Badger said we could hand Out the doughnuts. Mrs. Badger told the kids       to eat them until everyone got their food. A couple Of kids said the doughü"iutS were small. My friend Tracy thought they were homemade, Then the teacher said we could eat,            a sight to see! The boys shoved both of the doughnuts in their mouths, and the girls took small bites. Ttteri Megan and I announced that the doughnuts were play dough. • More Specifically, a barely edible homemade play dough,

THE REACTION:    the kids looked at us in horror and spit the doughnuts out. Megan and laughed and soon the rest Of the kids started laughing tae.' (Callie and Megan then handed Out the real doughnuts they'd brought,)

THE VICTIMS: His family

While Ken is, according to his sister Mary, an unusually elaborate prankster, one of his simplest tricks bVill work anywhere. Just superglue coins to the pavement. You'll need 10 find a spol thal is both heavily tratTvcked and suitable for gluing; a front sidewalk or driveway works well, though YOU may need to clean the surface to get the coins to stick. THE REACTION: Broken fingernails are not cut of question.

The Easter eæ is very popular. While the colored cardboard ones and rich chocolate ones that we enjoy are quite recent in origin, the real egg, decorated with colors or gilt, has been a symbol of life and resurrection since pre-Christian spring celebrations. The ancient Greeks, Persians, end Chinese gave them as gifts at their spring festivals. The egg also appears in pagan mythology. where the Sun Bird is hatched from the World Egs& In some pagan customs, Heaven and Earth were thought to have been formed from two halves of an egg.

Even as early as the Middle Ages, people colored eges to give as gifs at Easter; Edward I's accounts for 1290 include the expense of purchasing hundreds of eggs to give to his household. In the 17th century, Pape Paul V blessed the humble egg in a prayer 10 be used. in England, Scotland.

Thanksgiving Day

Tucked between the two monster sired holidays Of Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving receives far less attention, Blit Thanksgiving is a velY Important holiday, especially in the busy lives of Americans. It is a time to kick back and relax, watch football game or go 10 a movie, and enjoy a huge feast. It's also time for us 10 give thanks to our God* for the things he has bestowed upon us and upon this great nation. There is no nation in the world that has more to be thankful for than us. Thanksgiving History:

The first Thanksgiving was celebrated between the Pilgrims and the Indians in 162LThat first feast was a three day affair. Life for the early settlers was difficult.

. The fall harvest was lime for celebration. Il was also a time of prayer, thanking God for good crop. The Pilgrims and the Indians created a huge feast including a wide variety ofanimals and fowl, as well as fillits and vegetables from the fall harvest. This early celebration was the start of today's holiday celebtation, Like then, we celebrate with a huge feast,

Today, most of us enjoy Turkey with "all the trimming". The "trimming" include a wide variety of foods that are a tradition for your family. Those traditional foods often replicate the foods at the first Thanksgiving feast. While others, are traditional ethnic or religious groups recipe, or a spwial food item that your family always serves at Thanksgiving dinner. Then. to top it off, pumpkin pies, apple pies, an even mince meat pies are bountiful around the table.

American Thanksgiving traditions revolve around a huge and lavish meal, usually with Turkey as the centerpiece, For those who do not like Turkey, a Roast or Prime Rib is common. As tradition has it in most families, special prayer of Illanks precedes Ille meal- In many homes, family members will each tnetlliotl something they are very thankful for.

Did you know? Potatoes were not patt ofthe first Thanksgiving. Irish immigrants had nol yet brought them to North America.

After the first Thanksgiving, the observance was sporadic and almost forgotten until the early 1800', Il was usually celebrated in late September or October, In 1941, Congress made it a national holiday and set the dale as the fourth T•hursday in November,
