Jolly April Fool’s!

Last updated on March 5, 2021

Jolly April Fool’s Day! Can I say that during a pandemic? It sounds facetious, but that also begs the question; has humor died, or is this a time where humor is actually in high demand? (I was considering naming this post Convivial Corona Day, but I think some might perceive this to be in poor taste)

In light of the pandemic, I don’t know if April Fool’s Day has more or less significance. The social climate perhaps isn’t the best for jokes, and social distancing makes it more challenging to prank each other (though I am curious to see what pranks at a distance people partake in). On the other hand, I think many of us could use a good laugh.

Jolly April posts

So for those who are looking to forget about the pandemic, I have compiled some of our funniest and/or most light-hearted posts.
