Famous April Fools Jokes, It is time to unleash the prankster within you! April Fool’s Day, celebrated on 1 April every day, is an occasion marked by the playing of practical jokes on friends and family members.

Eiffel Tower Moves
It was a shock for French citizens when the Parisien, a French newspaper, reported on an agreement to dismantle the Eiffel Tower! This iconic symbol of French culture was supposedly being reconstructed in the new Euro Disney theme park, then being built at a location east of the city. The Tower, the joke continued, was to be replaced a 35,000 seat stadium to be used for the 1992 Olympic Games.

Tomb of Socrates Found
In 1995 the Greek Ministry of Culture announced the discovery of the tomb of Socrates – one of Ancient Greece’s most revered philosophers – during excavations for the Athens Metro System. The tomb was supposedly found near the base of the Acropolis. It was also reported that a vase containing traces of hemlock and a piece of leather dating back to between 400 BC and 390 BC were found. The news agency Agence France-Presse, believing the report to be true, immediately issued a release about the story; unfortunately the agency was forced to retract the story later.
