Practical jokes and hoaxes are part of the yearly tradition known as April Fools’ Day or All Fools’ Day, which occurs on April 1. April Fools! is a common way for jokesters to reveal their tricks. These practical jokes, which can be exposed as such the next day, can involve the media. The tradition of setting aside a day to pull amusing pranks on one’s neighbor has historically been rather widespread. (’_Day)

Should Christians participate in April Fools’ Day?

But knowledge, not folly, is something that God created. According to James 1:5, He expects His servants to seek His knowledge rather than act foolish. God’s Word declares in Proverbs 24:9 that “the thought [devising] of foolishness is sin.” According to I John 3:4 and Rom. 7:14, sin is the transgression of God’s spiritual commandments. Even jokes and foolish discourse are forbidden by God (Eph. 5:1-4). In Matthew 5:22, Christ said, “…whosoever shall say, you fool, shall be in danger of the fire of hell.”

According to Mark 7:21–23, Christ also denounced being foolish, saying that such behavior “comes from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness: For all these evil things come from within and defile the man.” Additionally, God instructs His people in Jeremiah 10:2–3 to “Learn not the way of the heathen…For the customs of the people are futile [futile]”. Furthermore, he orders, “Therefore, depart from them and be you separate” (II Cor. 6:17).

Being foolish is wrong. Christians must abstain from it. They must distance themselves from the world’s pagan traditions, rituals, and practices, especially April 1st. A sister played a practical joke on her husband in this narrative, and it caused problems in their marriage.


I wanted to give my husband what I thought was a surprise, I told him our first son was not his biological child. While we were having breakfast, I told him that I wanted to confess something which I have been hiding for the past four years since we have been married. “He then gave me the chance to speak and I told him, Israel is not your son but is my ex-lover’s.’ When I told him, he went out without saying anything. I thought he was going to come back soon… He spent the whole day away and he didn’t pick up my calls and that’s when I realized that he was affected by the story.”

MY husband didn’t return home, but went to his parents’ place to break the news. “When I got a call from my mother-in-law, that was when I realized how big the issue was, but I wasn’t scared because I thought of the DNA as my defense,” my husband parents insisted that we should divorce, my dear I cried and cried… 😭😭😭 My husband with his family didn’t believe me… to cut the story short April fool of 2020 caused 3yrs separation in my marriage, until God brought up an Angel *MR PETERS* to my way… December 27th 2022, God use him to settle my Marriage… please be careful with the spirit of APRIL FOOL.

We should draw lessons from this brief tale and exhort others to abstain from participating in it because even the Bible forbids it.
