Clay Aiken – It’s April Fools Day!

Today is April 1st, 2020.  Are You ready to be pranked??

Somehow, in my mind, it seems pranks and Clay Aiken go together. Even if Clay is having a busy day speaking, writing, or even traveling…I bet he will have time to celebrate April Fools day!!

April Fools Day, sometimes called All Fools Day, is a day of unknown origin. Yet, most of the western world knows this is a day set aside for good hearted pranks, hoaxes, gags, and giggles. It is a day that the gullible, well…watch out!

Pranks performed on April Fool’s Day range from the simple, (such as saying, “Your shoe’s untied!), to the elaborate. Setting a roommate’s alarm clock back an hour is a common gag. Whatever the prank, the trickster usually ends it by yelling to his victim, “April Fool!”

April Fool’s Day is a “for-fun-only” observance. Nobody is expected to buy gifts or to take their “significant other” out to eat in a fancy restaurant. Nobody gets off work or school. It’s simply a fun little holiday, but a holiday on which one must remain forever vigilant, for he may be the next April Fool!

  3. Thank you for all the pictures and the video. I was never into the pranks. I love this song and the pictures of Clay with the red hat. I love when Clay sings songs from Broadway. Thank you again.
