It's another year, and another April Fool's Day is upon us.

April Fool's Day is a lighthearted holiday that takes place on April 1st every year, where people play pranks and practical jokes on each other. It's a fun way to lighten the mood and make people laugh.

The origins of April Fool's Day are a bit unclear, but it's believed to have started in Europe during the Middle Ages. One theory is that it was related to the adoption of the Gregorian calendar in 1582, when New Year's Day was moved from April 1st to January 1st. Some people were slow to get the memo and continued to celebrate New Year's on April 1st, and were then mocked by those who knew the new date.

Regardless of its origin, April Fool's Day has become a popular tradition around the world, with people pulling harmless pranks and trying to trick their friends and family. It's a time for people to let loose and have some fun, but it's important to remember to keep it harmless and not mean-spirited.

The internet and social media have also had an effect on April Fool's Day as people were able to quickly search and find out whether certain pranks were true or not. Over the years, businesses and brands have embraced social media to have fun on April Fool's Day, and a few Lafayette locals are definitely celebrating in good spirits this year.

For example, did you hear that Kitchen on Klinton is getting rid of their favorite sauces? Hurry and get them before they're going on April 32nd.

It looks like Urban South is unveiling a new local flavor just in time for spring and summer.

Don't worry, next time it gets cold, Rouse's has a new quick and easy way to get that hot bowl of delicious gumbo.

And if you're looking for a new spin on a sweet treat, our friends at Caroline's Cookies have the perfect new flavor as their April special.

Our friends at Developing Lafayette were happy to announce something that was long overdue in Lafayette; literally everything on our wish list in ONE place.

Although they aren't in Lafayette, Golden Nugget Lake Charles was excited to announce a new rooftop feature.

If we're being honest, not all April Fool's Jokes are bad ideas. Take, for instance, this new transportation method from UL that could solve just about every parking concern and issue in Lafayette.

If April Fool's jokes are your thing, then you definitely wanna get your tickets to see Joe Rogan at Legend's on Bertrand. Lafayette Comedy has been on a great run and this show is just the latest in their hilarious local comedy offerings. I'm personally excited for Balki.

Like I said earlier, April Fool's is fun and it's always awesome to see our favorite local businesses and brands get in on the action. If you see anyone good ones, please send them my way and I'll be sure to add them to the list.

Happy April Fool's Day!
