Sunday hoax, Easter or April Fools?

Ennis is just days away from the start of the spring season. The next few weeks are as full of events and celebrations as the Bluebonnet Trails are filled with the state flower. Oddly, two observed days, Easter and April Fools, coincide on Sunday. The latter has been recognized as a day for pulling pranks or playing jokes on others or for promoting a variety of hoaxes. When the victim of said prank, joke or trick realizes they’ve been had, the perpetrator is prone to shouting, “April Fools!” In Ireland, it was traditional to entrust the victim with an “important letter” to be given to a named person. That person would then ask the victim to take it to someone else, and so on. The letter when finally opened contained the words “send the fool further.” While it is not a national holiday any where, it is widely practiced and is generally not harmful.
