Today is April 1st, better known as April Fools' Day. It's celebrated in many countries worldwide, a day devoted to laughter and fun.
The tradition is said to originate from France during the reign of Louis XIV. The king wanted to pass a law stating that the calendar year would start on April 1. Everyone was against and the law was never passed.
As a sign of protest, residents sent the king a New Year's card on April 1. The prank would be remembered by all to this day.
Now here's a few culinary pranks you can play on friends and loved ones:
Another idea is to bake a cake. Make it with a filling of feta cheese, sprinkle it with baby powder and let your friends have a taste. I have no idea what'll happen but I hope it brings nothing other than smiles on their faces.
And one final idea for a prank is to make a caramel, candy peeled onion heads and then put them on a stick as is typically done for candy apples. This is a unique prank. There will be rivers of tears, not just because of the onions but out of laughter.
And as they say, laughter is the best medicine.
"Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face."
- Victor Hugo
