The lighthearted blue sky

By Jade Roberts, Social Media Director

With COVID-19 making things heavy this springtime, people have wondered if the traditions of April Fools’ Day also known as All Fools’ Day have been canceled this year. There have been numerous posts to social media claiming it to be so. Many have decided to refer to April 1 as March 32 this year due to the stress of coronavirus.

Maybe pranks are a bit much this year. After all, shouldn’t we be serious with census day on our minds? Does anyone really feel like laughing with a pandemic going on? We all need a little lift these days don’t you think?

So, is April Fool’s day really cancelled?

With Rickrolls in mind, I don’t think this is the case.

But remember, if you’re observing the traditions of April Fools’ Day, be kind and courteous, especially during these difficult times.
