"Happy April Fool's Day from Creepypasta!"

Written by

Estimated reading time β€” 2 minutes

Since many of you seem to be confused: in my time zone, it is April 1st. This is known as April Fool’s Day in many countries around the world. As a number of you seem to find this a strange and new concept, here you go:

April Fools’ Day is celebrated in many countries on April 1 every year. Sometimes referred to as All Fools’ Day, April 1 is not a national holiday, but is widely recognized and celebrated as a day when people play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other.

The earliest recorded association between April 1 and foolishness is an ambiguous reference in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales (1392). Many writers suggest that the restoration of January 1 by Pope Gregory XIII as New Year’s Day of the Gregorian Calendar in the 16th century was responsible for the creation of the holiday, sometimes questioned for earlier references.

…All that is to say, yes, if the date somehow didn’t already tip you off, the floating creepypasta, numbers station playlist, and steady stream of parodypasta is our way of celebrating April Fool’s Day. Ex-admin Predhead helped me out with deciding what to do, so he gets a portion of the credit (or blame?) as well!

For those of you having heart attacks all over the comments, it’s okay. The floating stuff and autoplay will be gone once the day is over.

For the time being, if you really just cannot handle even one day of this, scroll all the way down and you’ll find the audio player. You can stop the numbers stations there (or listen to more of them if you find them appealing). The floatypasta effect ends after 20 seconds on any page, so you don’t have to wait too long for Jeff and his posse to leave you alone and let you read some pasta.

If you haven’t, yet, I suggest that you pay Crappypasta a visit as well. It’s looking particularly special today too, though it might take a moment to sneak up on you.

I hope that calms the anxieties of all of you either aren’t familiar with the holiday or just were unable to put two and two together, and for the rest of you – Happy April Fool’s Day!
