A prank or two is always fun on April Fool's! Here's five to choose from.

1. Sugar and spice (or is it salt?)

A classic April Fool's prank is to swap out the sugar and the salt. That means putting sugar in the salt shaker, and adding salt to people's coffee. Assuming your friends and coworkers aren't too serious about their coffee, it should be a pretty fun prank.

2. Balloons galore!

Fill someone's room with balloons of every color! The clean up might take a little bit, but who doesn't love balloons anyway? Just remember to check if they have a latex allergy first.

3. Soap with no suds

This one is easy! Take a bar of soap and coat it with some clear nail polish, and voila! It's soap that can never get soapy. Hand it to a friend and watch them struggle.

4. Push or pull?

A daily struggle one goes through everyday: is this door a push or pull? Trick your friends and coworkers by putting a sign up that advertises the wrong action. Soon they'll be questioning everything: up or down? Left or right? What is what?

5. Don't scream...

Buy a bag of fake insects: roaches, spiders, grasshoppers, the works. Then, hide them in various drawers, couch cushions or even tape them to the inside of a lamp shade. At some point during the day you're likely to hear an earth-shattering scream, and then hopefully some laughter.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
