Can we just reboot 2020 and do the year differently?
As you are no doubt well aware, it’s the 1st of April which means ‘April Fool’s Day’ but deducing from everything happening around the world as regards COVID-19, April Fool’s Day has been cancelled.
Usually, when it’s 1st of April, people get creative with jokes and pranks, but in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, the pranksters have decided to forgo pranks this year, seeing as how we’re living in a time of unprecedented panic and hysteria.
Several Twitter users have expressed that they don’t feel comfortable making jokes because so far, 2020 has been a joke.
Historically, Google celebrates April with elaborate pranks, doodles and Easter eggs, but now, with people depending on Google for information about the coronavirus pandemic, this is certainly not the time for jokes.
Let’s take a stroll through the streets of Twitter and find out how people are feeling about April Fool’s Day.
I think we should all go ahead and agree to skip the April fool's jokes this time around.
