April Fools’ Day: Your ultimate guide to pranking by zodiac sign
It’s almost that time of year again—April Fools’ Day. Whether you love it or hate it, you have to have some appreciation for a day that manages to keep you on your toes, year after year. While most of us stop partaking in April Fools’ pranks at a young age, this year we’re suggesting you bring it back. (Maybe not at the expense of your boss, but your significant other or your BFF? Most definitely.) ICYMI, Jon Lovitz and Jessica Lowndes clearly got the memo, just way too early.
So, not sure how to go about this? Pranking game feeling rusty? We’re here to help. We’ve curated the ultimate April Fools’ Day prank list, according to your zodiac sign—and which sign you should do each one to. You are very welcome.
Which prank you should do: Anything with confetti or silly string. Aries are not ones for subtlety, so you’ll always be a kid at heart.
Who to prank: Virgo. The perfectionist of the zodiac will hate how messy this is.
Which prank you should do: Cover someone’s desk/bed/chair in aluminum foil. You like shiny things, right Taurus? Well, your victim won’t.
Who to prank: Speaking of your victim, pull this one on Capricorn, who will most definitely be planning on working late and heading home from a long day hoping to go straight to bed.
Which prank you should do: Geminis are the best liars of the zodiac, so you can pull off pretty much anything. Fake parking tickets, eviction notices; honestly, this is your day to shine, so whatever you pick, you’ll probably slay.
Who to prank: Leo. Their hot temper won’t faze you.
