Hi to everybody,
In Afghanistan the full of year (365 days) is Fool’s Day, more of people pride about this character.
It is very bad as I think.

I like playing tricks on people. It's fun. My country has this day, too.

My teacher doesn't like pranking people so she tells us not to prank others. I don't prank because I don't want them to get mad at me. :)

On April fools day my sister filled up a balloon with water and put it on my brothers chair and covered it with an old pillow then my brother actually didn't looked at the chair and sat on it. And SPLASH!!!! the water balloon exploded and my brother was so angry she hit my sister.It is funny. But not the part she hit my sister. I don't like playing triks on people because it might hurt their feelings. Also I like saying jokes to cheer people up.

I cannot play tricks on people but I would like to watch other people playing tricks. In my country there are no any day like April's fool day but there are some kind of these playing tricks in the party. I haven't played any tricks to somebody because I haven't know how to do it.
