Today is April 1, April Fool’s Day in the English-speaking world and even in Iran.

In Latin America, Dec. 28, the religious feast day of the Holy Innocents is the day when pranks and hoaxes may be played. The religious day is in memory of the children who supposedly were slain by Herod, king of the Jews, who was searching for the infant Jesus Christ. But the word is too good to pass up for pranksters.
