Why I am not into April’s Fool Day

Today, the 1st of April is marked as April’s Fool Day in most parts of the world. This day will see millions of people around the planet playing hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, enemies and neighbors, or sending them on fools’ errands, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible.

So why am I such a party pooper on such a fun day? Simply because it is found written in the Bible:

The Biblical “Ten Commandments

Well I’m certainly not saying I am an “holier-than-thou” Christian, and I also can’t deny I’d never ever lie. But I would love to strive to obey God’s commandments as much as I possibly can. And not lying on the 1st of April is one of the things that I am able to do to honor Him. So what say you?

  1. wah, i suddenly got whacked by those tablets!!! anyhow, for me, i think there’s no harm, in a little joking here and there, afterall, in context, i am sure “thou shall bear false witness” is meant for those WITH the real intention of deceiving and leaving it at that. for april fool, it’s like in the spirit of fun. then again, i am considered a liberal and think drinking is okay too.
